Wasn't Pedro the one that hit Alfonso Soriano amd Jeter back to back? I never had respect for this guy, and if he is helping with the Red Sox younger pitchers, he will probably teach them how to be head hunters. He also pushed Zimmer to the ground. He might be a zillionaire but the Red Sox are famous because they are unprofessional and classless and Pedro was the Drum Major of that CREW OF IDIOTS!

The guy knocked out Jeter and Soriano back to back, he is a no good thug.




I was at that game.... I believe Bernie hit a game winning home run that knocked Pedro out of the game.

   The worst apsect of the DH rule is that it lets guys like Pedro act tough without having to be tough. Drysdale, Maglie, Gibson, et. al. had to  stand up at bat and sometimes even had to run bases - and maybe get drilled going to second or even third. Pedro...and the Rocket as well, got to act tough without consequences.  BS!





True but the hitters could have charged the mound. That's what I never understood.He's not a big guy and one butt kicking might have changed all that. That's what I liked about Strawberry when he was on the Yanks. If you threw at one of us he was going after you.

   The problem with charging the mound is that you are clearly the instigator in an altercation that is "not baseball." You are going to be the one that is suspended or worse. If a guy gets hit by a pitch, or even a thrown ball, the argument is always there that it just happened. Heck...a few minutes ago a kid pitcher hit Giancarlo Stanton in the head with a batting practice pitch. It does happen and the pitcher can always argue that it just got away from me. 


   Add to that is the fact that few baseball players know what to do when they gtt to the mound. The Billy Martin / Gregg Nettles guys are rare. In general, if you played baseball you were not a fighter. So you charge the mound, throw a punch that misses by a mile...hit the guy and break your own hand or clamp on the old headlock...not much of a response to getting hit with a 94mph fastball. Charging the mound is just not a good solution for most of these situations.

He threw at the Yanks enough to know it wasn't always unintentional. I agree most players don't know how to fight ,Robin Ventura a classic, thats why I liked Strawberry. He was big and strong and went after them. The Yanks after him for the most part just took it. Their pitchers didn't return the favor for the most part so dirtbags like Martinez continued to do it. With the DH that would have been a way. Garcia should have charged the mound. No great loss and you get Pedro out.
