    So no, they weren’t necessarily used in the crime. Like, if my fingerprints were on a murder weapon, it doesn’t mean it did it. It’s just weird that my prints would clearly be left on a gun right before it was fired for a murder

    Jamie Raskin Urged Biden to Drop Out by Comparing Him to an Exhausted Pedro Martinez in the 2003 ALCS
  • Actually, it's a pretty flattering analogy if you read it. Pedro was (is? idk what to call him, he's alive but retired) one of the greatest pitchers of all time. He got overconfident and stayed in the game too long and cost his team the World Series American League Championship. Raskin isn't being dismissive of the election, he's making an analogy.

    edit: not the World Series

    Jamie Raskin Urged Biden to Drop Out by Comparing Him to an Exhausted Pedro Martinez in the 2003 ALCS
  • In the eighth inning of the seventh game of the 2003 American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees, Pedro Martinez, one of the greatest pitchers in Red Sox history, began to tire badly after 118 pitches and he gave up three straight hits and a run from Derek Jeter. The Red Sox Manager, Grady Little, visited the mound and Martinez vigorously protested that he was fine and he could continue and give it his all despite all the statistics about what happens when pitchers play after throwing for so long. Little kept him in and the Yankees proceeded to tie the game at the next at-bat with a two-run single and then went on to win the game with an 11th inning home run by Aaron Boone.
