Or at least, he's not going to New York.
Let's settle this. Pedro is NOT going to the Yankees. Pedro will talk to them and all of New England will be up in arms, but in the end all his talking to them is designed to get more money out of OTHER teams (i.e. the Red Sox). Pedro more than any other Red Sox player legitimately HATES the Yankees. Also, Pedro is a player just as concerned with legacy and story as much as he is with winning. Now that Boston has won, he doesn't have to leave Boston for the ring (ala Wade Boggs and Roger Clemens)...He can have both winning AND legacy in Boston, unlike many who have come before him in this town. Yeah the Yankees have plenty of legacy and story, but those are guys like B. Williams, Derek Jeter, Posada, Rivera, etc...Giambi, Matsui, ARod, Sheffield...these are guys who have gone to NY and been mercenaries more than parts of a legendray franchise. And Pedro knows that.
He stays in Boston.
I have more thoughts on this, but I'd like to throw this out first and get some thoughts. I just really think Pedro is smart enough to know that letting everybody think he will go to the Yankees is a great way to get a lot of money out of Boston, where I truly believe he wants to stay.
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.
