The now apparently graceless Pedro Martinez has started to let rip at the Bosox indicating a little of what the Mets have actually bought. Some choice quotes:
- Of the team he is going to: "I hope 'Tek is on my team...I do want Piazza, too. Piazza is a good hitter. We can move him to first or somewhere. ... I want 'Tek. 'Tek is a good player, a good catcher..."
- Of his former manager: "Francona is subject to what they decide...Francona had no say, like he didn't have any say in managing the team. He was manipulated from upstairs....I was in the clubhouse, that's how I know...
- Of his former team's negotiations with his agent: "You want to sign me, get it done. Please force them to get it done. I'm willing to stay here. Negotiate with them. I just don't want to be under Schilling..."
