Very smart piece in the Weekend Wall Street Journal about Pedro Martinez. Headline: “Pedro: Baseball’s Last Great Ego.”
Too bad the Pedro paean also included this:
During his career, teammates have seen him singing and dancing in the clubhouse in his underwear at one moment, and then later, bloodlessly beaning a hitter in the ribs.
Yeah . . . except you can only bean someone in the head. In the ribs, you plunk them.
Not to get technical about it.
