Main Event

Pedro Martinez takes the hill at Yankee Stadium tonight, and my greatest disappointment is that Don Zimmer isn’t still in the Yankees dugout.

You remember their clash back in 2003, right? Zimmer, who was then 72-years-old, came barreling out of the dugout and charged at Pedro during a benches-clearing brawl.

Martinez, doing what anyone would do when Grandpa is acting a little nuts, threw him to the ground and Zim had a cut on his nose. Way to handle your business Petey. You knocked out Santa Claus.

I’m all for Pedro dusting guys off the plate and starting the occasional riot, but he should really take it easy against dudes collecting Social Security.

I mean, just imagine how he’d feel if ARod throws Charlie Manuel on the ground tonight.
