I think it might be ten days or so. The game was on the 16th, ended on the 17th, so you have till the 17th, in my book.


this has got to be the slowest month ..... .... .... ever. :~(


I happen to like Pedro on a stick. :-)

Are you that anxious to switch to the new Padres logo for your avatar? :-B

If ANYONE pitching in the majors, in that situation, had said, "I'm tired, take me out", is obviously not a good pitcher. That would tell me that they second guess themselves, and are not confident in their abilities. I can guarentee you that Pedro is not one of those people.

Here, I think this article just shows how every story has two sides, and to not believe every article that you read. read a couple on the same topic, and then come to a conclusion. ;-D

Ok, I have been through two articles and a fumin' "Red Sox" fan, but still no awnser ..

Why did Pedro call this press conference?


What was the point?

I have an idea. But I would bet $20.00 bucks that not one "Sox Fan" would agree with me. :-)

Does anybody know why? :-?

So, Steve, what you recommend for subpar performers (those who don't perform up to the standard set by the community) is to ignore them? Okay. No problem.

I don't see much into Pedros comments. He said it was Little's decision, which it is, thats no secret. Pedro is nearing Bonds in persecution posts. No matter what they say or do, someone will jump on it.

I think he called the conference to help his legacy. In his distorted logic, he wants only to be remembered for those seven brilliant innings, not the eighth, which he will blame on Grady. He so wants to be in the Hall of Fame, that he's trying to BS his way in. Although I think he's made it already with his absolute domination over several seasons, many people think you have to be good over much longer. We'll see.

Is that what you think, WR?
I'm back. Sorta.

Pedros a lock for HOF. Hes only 300 innings short of Koufax, whos in, and Pedros numbers are better, pitching in a much more offensive period, and not having Dodger Stadium as a plus. Pedros numbers are sick. You are watching Bonds = pitching wise.
