Pedro Martinez Weighs In: 'I Would Have Drilled Machado'

Just in case you had any doubt, if Pedro Martinez was still pitching, he would have plunked Manny Machado after the spiking incident with Dustin Pedroia. According to's Scott Lauber (who apparently survived the "Bloodbath In Bristol"), the Hall of Fame pitcher said, "If I was pitching, I was going to drill Machado, as much as I love him. The only thing I would've done differently is probably bring the ball a little bit lower." Did you really have any doubt? Pedro also did not think that Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes was intentionally throwing at Machado's head. Hey, it hit his bat anyway, right? Foul ball.
