Pedro Martinez and Animal Cruelty

Just what the Mets needed after introducing Johan Santana to the media. Pedro Martinez appears in a YouTube video attending a cockfight in the Dominican Republic. You can read the Newsday story here. Apparently, its legal and part of the Dominican culture. After the Michael Vick animal cruelty situation, the Mets really don’t need this negative attention. We’ll see how understanding the American public is of this “cultural” phenomenon.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
