Pedro Martinez put on a Boston Red Sox uniform Monday, hit the field and ... coached. He's acting as a "special assistant" to general manager Ben Cherington, working with some of the young Red Sox pitchers. But as anybody who has ever heard a Pedro Martinez interview knows, he can deliver pure gold when you put a microphone in front of him. That's why we care a bit more about what Pedro said after helping out the young BoSox arms than what he did on the field. Specifically this tidbit rang out: Pedro admitted to reporters that 90 percent of the batters he hit were on purpose. Say what you want about Pedro, but he always did have control.
