Pedro Martinez's Number Will Be Retired July 28

The Red Sox will retire Pedro Martinez's #45 on Tuesday, July 28, before a game against the White Sox. The ceremony will be held two days after Martinez is inducted into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Pedro pitched for the Red Sox for seven seasons (1998-2004), and was fucking awesome, turning in two of the strongest pitching seasons of all time (1999 and 2000) and winning three Cy Young awards. In 2004, he helped the Red Sox win their first World Series title in 86 long years.

"fucking awesome"

I don't think that quite goes far enough ;-)

The Red Sox should fly Sandra Bullock in for the ceremonies.

I was already going to that game since it was originally billed as "Pedro Hall of Fame Plaque night." Bonus!
