Martinez, who will always be remembered for his great cutter, curveball, and ability to throw delicate old men to the ground without remorse (see below), apparently had the hots for Hollywood superstar Sandra Bullock in the early 2000s.
In the following excerpt from the book “Feeding the Monster: How Money, Smarts, and Nerve Took a Team to the Top” By Seth Mnookin, Martinez admits his love for Bullock during a Sports Illustrated Kids interview, which can only be described as the best thing sports journalism has ever offered the world.
Imagine opening up Sports Illustrated Kids as a child after a long day of coloring maps in the third grade. In between the cool pictures, the half-assed sports jokes, the trading cards, and the Buzz Beamer comic strip lies the following Pedro Martinez interview:
Pedro Martinez, the superstar pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, sat down with SI Kids to answer some of YOUR questions!
What’s your favorite color? “Green.”
What’s your favorite book? “Whatever.”
Favorite actress? “Sandra Bullock.”
Secret ambition? “I want to fuck Sandra Bullock.”
That’s a Hall of Fame interview for sure.
