NEW YORK — Will Pedro Martinez pitch again this season or won't he?
While Boston manager Joe Kerrigan said Martinez is set to make his next start, the Red Sox ace insisted Saturday that it will be his decision.
Just another day of simmering trouble in the clubhouse of a team that has fallen out of contention and been enveloped in turmoil.
"Yes. He is still scheduled for his next start. We'll have further discussions tomorrow," Kerrigan said after the Red Sox lost 9-2 to the New York Yankees.
But Martinez, who has already been on the disabled with a sore right shoulder, was adamant that he would make the final call on whether or not he pitches during the remainder of the season.
