Pedro Ain’t Havin’ None Of What Jorge Posada’s Selling
Jorge Posada doesn’t know when to leave well enough alone. He decided to go there and revisit the infamous 2003 Red Sox-Yankees brawl which resulted Pedro tossing Don Zimmer like a Mississippi River sandbag.
Posada, in an interview with Michael Kay on the YES network’s Centerstage, didn’t hold back.
“I thought he was going to hit me in the head with a bat after we had the fight and he pushed Don Zimmer,” Posada said. “It was ridiculous. I mean, he throws at Karim Garcia because he’s losing the game. I mean, there’s no class.”
Pedro took Posada’s comments with a grain of salt and laughed them off … Yeah not so much.
“When I pointed to the head, it wasn’t precisely to tell him that I wanted to hit him in the head,” Martinez said. “Nah. He’s a human being, he has a family, and I’m a professional. [The pointing to the head] was because he cursed my mom. I was telling him, ‘I’ll remember that.’ “
“He knows – he’s Latin, as much as he pretends to be American, he’s Latin – that cursing your mom in Latin America will get you into a fight,” Martinez said. “That’s something I would never do to his mom, because she doesn’t play. She’s not on the field. She’s someone you admire and respect, and I didn’t like that.”
The New York Post called Pedro livid and called his response blistering. Can’t you sense the rageahol coursing through his veins? Jorge better watch himself. He saw what happened to the old man. Does he think Pedro would hold back on him? He might catch a midget upside the head if he’s not careful.
