    Via the Post – five days ago:

    And now it turns out Pedro Martinez not only has rabbit ears, admonishing a first-row fan last night at one point for using foul language around his daughter, but also remembers more than elephants.

    As we learned at Wednesday’s press conference, the self-described “most influential player” at Yankee Stadium has, in his old age, become almost as adept at holding runners as holding a grudge.

    “One of your colleagues [once] had me in the papers with red horns and a tail, a sign of the devil,” said Martinez. “I’m a Christian man, I don’t like those things.

    “Those are things that sometimes influence people to believe you are a bad person, like an ogre.”

    Well, Petey, the Post didn’t give you horns in today’s edition, but….

    You know…maybe this is just the nervous Yankees fan in me…but…maybe it’s not a great idea to give Martinez some extra motivation today? Yeah…sure…I know…he should be motivated enough considering the situation with this game…and he probably is…I just don’t think it’s a great idea to give him any more motivation…

      I don’t think this is a big deal. If the Yanks lose tonight because Pedro pitched a gem, I don’t think it’s because of the NY Post from page. It’s because Teixeira/Cano/Gardner are offensive black holes.
