On Pedro's Mound

"I don't know if you realize this, but because of you guys in some ways, I might be at times the most influential player that ever stepped in Yankee Stadium. I can honestly say that...I said it before, when you have 60,000 people chanting your name, waiting for you to throw the ball, you have to consider yourself someone special, someone that really has a purpose out there." Pedro Martinez

When Pedro Martinez left the Boston Red Sox it was literally breaking news. The press conference was carried live, stations interrupted programming-Pedro was gone.

Tonight he is back. Back on the biggest stage in baseball...The World Series, but not in a Red Sox uniform. Pedro is pitching on the mound at Yankee Stadium-it may not be the same Yankee Stadium that was the scene of the greatest heartbreak in Red Sox fan history---you remember, when "he who shall not be named" ...well never mind-too painful to go back...but the ghosts have followed Pedro to the new Yankee stadium-he is after all Pedro Martinez...and every broken hearted Red Sox fan will be watching a World Series we could care less about ---that was until we learned Pedro was pitching.
