Pedro Martinez appears to have a lot of confidence in the 2021 Red Sox.
Martinez was part of the memorable 2004 Red Sox team that broke an 86-year curse, came back from a 3-0 deficit against the Yankees in the AL Championship Series and swept the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. So, he certainly knows a thing or two about overcoming the near-impossible.
The three-time Cy Young Award winner took to Twitter early Thursday morning to offer up an explanation as to what the Red Sox will do heading into Game 1 and why they’ll be able to “give anybody knuckles.”
Martinez tweeted: “The @RedSox will build momentum based on the opportunity they just earned by beating the Yanks. They have enough experience, and enough talent to give anybody knuckles.”
Game 1 is set to begin at 8:07 p.m. ET, and NESN will have a full hour of pregame and postgame coverage.
