Someone in an earlier thread about Maggs pointed out that free agents rarely leave with something nice to say about their old organizations. Well, here's Pedro Martinez ripping the BoSox to emphasize that point.

Pedro is a douche bag. I guess the contract Boston threw at him was a slap in the face (3years/40 million IIRC). Throwing $40 million at a guy with a torn labrum must mean they don't want him around.

A good friend of mine is a huge Mets fan, and he is NOT happy with Minaya right about now.

Pedro may have a golden arm on occasion, but his personality could use a serious makeover.

Minaya wants to put himself right out of a job. He's overpaid for Pedro. He supposedly is very interested in Scammy, and I heard on sporting news radio that they're in the Delgado race. Interesting...

Mets fans are lucky there are 8 of 10 people in the organization who have some clue. But yea, in 2 years they will be trying to trade Pedro like they are trying to trade Piazza and Floyd now. What a horrible, horrible organization.

He'll let the words speak for themselves

So now we know the reasons why he left. And more.

Pedro Martinez was hurt the Red Sox didn't act more quickly in their efforts to sign him. He didn't like the Sox sending more than one person to the Dominican Republic to negotiate. He doesn't like Curt Schilling. He doesn't need the money because he's been a millionaire since he was 24. He couldn't go to New York for Game 6 because apparently no visiting pitcher can get his offday work done at Yankee Stadium. And Boston, apparently unlike New York, is a negative place.

Pedro was introduced to Met Nation in a bizarre press conference at Shea Stadium yesterday that was sure to give New York's newest ace the Big Apple headlines all to himself . . . until, of course, it was reported later last night that the Yankees were close to acquiring Randy Johnson. Typical. Having passed his physical Wednesday, with the ink drying on his new $53 million, four-year contract, Pedro patiently answered all the questions from the fourth estate. It got a little rough at times, and Mets general manager Omar Minaya had to interrupt to assure Pedro not all New Yorkers think he's a "punk."

Martinez's contract includes bonuses also a luxury suite at Shea and a hotel suite for road games.
