Pedro: I would like to fuck Sandra Bullock.
I would like to sleep with Sandra Bullock.Five years later (2006), Pedro spoke with Dave Buscema of the Times Herald-Record (Hudson Valley, New York):
Q: What's your favorite movie?
Pedro: Any movie that has Sandra Bullock in it.
Q: Oh, yeah? Big Sandra Bullock fan?
Pedro: Probably her biggest fan.
Q: Too bad you weren't here a few years ago, they did that scene at Shea for a movie, Piazza was in a scene with her.
Q: Yeah, "Two Weeks Notice". You ever see that one?
Q: Yeah, they did a scene at Shea, Piazza did a scene with her.
Pedro: Lucky him!
Q: He didn't sound like he felt too lucky. He said it took too long.
Pedro: Really? Well, I'll spend ... I know my wife is ...
Q: You'd better be careful ...
Pedro: Yeah, my wife will be really jealous if I say what I meant to say. ...
Q: Who are three people you'd like to take to dinner?
Pedro: They have to be someone else, other than you know?
Pedro: Sandra would be one of them. (Laughs) I would like to spend some time with [Claude] Osteen, the pitcher from Texas. I like the way he pitches and the way he talks about the Lord. ... The other person would probably be ... someone from politics, would probably be Hillary Clinton. She'd be interesting. ...
Finally, there is this exchange during an August 2010 interview:
Dayn Perry: Do you miss Dan Shaughnessy?
Pedro Martinez: No, no, no. That's the only thing I don't miss about Boston. I'm pretty sure other players feel that way, too.
