If you get the chance, log onto WEEI's website and listen to the Pedro Martinez interview. Very honest and relaxed interview. Must-listen radio,

And that happens so infrequently these days.

Right now he is explaining how Tek worked as hard as he did because he needed that in order to catch Pedro.

I love that guy.

So, are you saying that Pedro is awesome?

I think you might be selling him short.

Asshole.

Relating a story he said he'd never shared before, Duquette described how he and Martinez's agent, Bob Gilhooly, came to terms on a new contract for Martinez at New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel. They made the deal, Duquette said, under pressure from members of the Secret Service, who with their search dogs were impatiently waiting for them to exit their suite so they could prepare it for a soon-to-be arriving guest -- President Clinton.

They got the deal done, Duquette said, thanks to a Secret Service agent who said he was from Maine.

"I don't know who this guy is," the agent said to his superior, gesturing at Duquette, who was sitting on the edge of the bed, "but he's trying to sign Pedro Martinez. The President of the United States can wait."
