Pedro on the air

 

Pedro Martinez has endured and savored a little of everything in the pressure of a baseball postseason. Tussling with Don Zimmer. Blowing a big lead on the cusp of the World Series. Winning a city’s first championship in 86 years. Now that the three-time Cy Young winner will be talking about the game from the calm of the studio, he wants to remember that tension. Martinez will join TBS’s playoff coverage as an analyst next month. “Some of us, when we go up to the booth and look at the game down on the field, sometimes we tend to forget how difficult the game is and how uncomfortable it is to execute under pressure,” he said. – AP
