For Pedro Martinez, it came in a postseason matchup against the Cleveland Indians. For Curt Schilling, it was a bloody sock. Tonight, for Javier Lopez, it was a strikeout of Carlos Delgado in the eighth inning of a 10-2 blowout: today he is a Boston Red Sox.
self-importance kidding aside, we’re proud of our ability to coax Pedro into his earliest exit in THREE YEARS, much less this season, and, to mangle a phrase from way on down in Tuscaloosa, "roll Sox roll!". Tomorrow they go for the full dozen. Good times.
