Baseball Told the Right WayIn-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!
Now I've seen everything...........
See that little guy on the right. See him? Well that little dude sitting next to Marlon Brando is 28 inches tall, his name is Nelson de la Rosa, and he is Pedro Martinez' friend. As Tony Mas says, you can't make this stuff up.
One day after his increasingly notorious, "the Yankees are my daddies" comment, Pedro walked into the Red Sox clubhouse carrying de la Rosa in his arms. In his arms. Apparently they hang out.
'Dude, Pedro's bobblehead (doll) was bigger than him,' said awestruck Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo. 'It was unbelievable.'I can't even imagine the scene as Pedro walked in before the game. From the Hartford Courant,
Kevin Millar said Red Sox manager Terry Francona thought de la Rosa was a toy when he walked into the manager's office.Throwing the distasteful comments from the Red Sox aside for a second (further evidence that Millar is a boob), what in the hell is Pedro doing hanging out with a 28 inch man. I can't even begin to fathom how this relationship started. Is Pedro planning on becoming a carney after he retires? In his arms?!?!
I think we can all agree that this is the most bizarre thing to happen to baseball since Jose Canseco bounced a fly ball off his head for a homerun.
