Pedro Says Manny Would Spike Drinks With Viagra In Red Sox Clubhouse

Pedro Martinez is making the media rounds this week. He’s got a book coming out and the well-versed pitcher has a lot to say.

On Monday, Pedro enlightened Mike Francesa on why he and Jorge Posada still got beef. And now some other stories from Pedro’s career are coming to the surface, including one about a special concoction that Manny Ramirez would make for the players. According to the Score Pedro said that Sox players would take turns introducing their favorite shots prior to games. Ramirez’s creme de la creme was a Dominican drink called Mamajuana (gin, honey, wine, and medicine root) but Manny’s version had one more special ingredient.

“(Ramirez) put three 100mg Viagras in it. So here we go, somebody needs to taste this to see if it works,” Martinez said. “So we decided to let Ellis Burks try to taste it and I say, ‘You know, this mamajuana, if you drink it, you might get turned on.’ He said, ‘Oh, I’ll try it. I’ll try it. I’m not playing anyway.’ So he took it, it seemed like it worked. So everybody was coming up to him for a little shot.”
