Pedro called the press conference in the Dominican Republic, for their media. It really wasn't meant to be a national press conference.
AND, Pedro is already going into the hall of fame. He's been more dominant in his career so far than any other pitcher in the last 40 years. He has the highest win percentage of any current pitcher, and his ERA is unheard of in today's game of offense orientated baseball.
Going to huge someday.

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.
5 era titles 3 cys, probably should be 5 career era+ 1st win % 3rd hits per 9 2nd walks + hits per 9 (ratio) 3rd k's per 9 2nd
You make a great case, and I agree with you. But Rob Neyer--a writer I greatly respect--doesn't think Pedro has made his case. I'm sure other writers would agree.
I couldn't get his picks to display. Sure some writers won't vote for him, no one ever has gotton 100% vote. Seaver had the best %, something like 98%. To be honest, i don't read Meyer, but i certaintly not too hot on him, if he dismisses a 5 time cy winner for HOF. Pedro's only negative is innings, and he's still pitching, and will add to that. Pedro's peak years, his best 3, beat anyone's. His numbers are actually better career wise then the highly regarded Koufax, who Pedro should match in innings after next year. Clemens imo, is the best career pitcher since the 30s, but his peak wasn't even Pedro like. If Pedro can add 1,000 more innings, imo, he would pass Roger, and be top 3 ever.

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?
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?
yep, I am pretty sure Pedro called he press conference for selfish reasons only ....
