Probably my favorite quote so far this series, from Pedro’s presser just moments ago at Yankee Stadium:
“I remember quotes from the paper, ‘Here come the men that New York loves to hate.’ Men? None of you have probably ever ate steak with me, or rice and beans with me to know what the men is like. You might say the player, the competitor, but the men? You guys have abused my name.
“There is one time I remember when I was a free agent there was talk that I might meet with [Yankee’s owner George] Steinbrenner. One of your colleagues had me in the paper with horns and a tail. Red horns and a tail. That’s the sign of the devil. I’m a Christian man. I don’t like those things.”
Don’t mess with Pedro, before you eat rice and beans with him, New York.
