On the field, Pedro Martinez was an excellent pitcher. However, there are two parts to being a big-leaguer (or any professional athlete, for that matter): the game itself and the player's behavior off the field. Some of Pedro's locker room remarks were unacceptable. According to one report, Martinez said that the Sox signed Schilling to replace him because of skin color. Not true! Explain Ortiz and Ramirez, then! We offered him a contract and he chose to sign with the Mets. That's that!
I am a Red Sox fan, I have always been one, and I will always be one, and I have always despised the Yankees and always will, and I never thought I would say this, but... HEY PEDRO! WHO'S YOUR DADDY?

Schilling Doing Well, Sox Sweep Phillies
The Red Sox stuck it to the Phillies this weekend with a 3-game sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies in interleague play, even though they didn't have ace pitcher Curt Schilling to help them... YET. Schilling is on the verge of returning to the rotation, hoping to be back by thr All-Star break. The Red Sox surprisingly have some roots with the Phillies. Terry Francona once managed for the Phillies, and Schilling set a record for most strikeouts in a season with a whopping 319 Ks back in 1997 with the Phillies!

WE'RE STILL BETTER!
There were 45 states in the Union
The president was Theodore Roosevelt
The Fall Classic was in its 1st year
Fenway Park wasn't to be for another 9 years!
So, last night was the first time the Pittsburg Pirates have ever played at Fenway Park! (Before 1912, the Sox played at the Huntington Avenue Base Ball Grounds.)
And we still beat them!
