This time, to borrow his favorite expression, Pedro Martinez wasn’t in the house. At least not early enough to satisfy manager Jimy Williams, who bounced the Red Sox ace from his scheduled start yesterday when he was a late arrival to Fenway Park and didn’t phone in his regrets.
``He was late . . . I didn’t know where he was,’’ Williams said of his pitcher who failed to show up within the designated time before his start. ``I had to make a decision, and tell another pitcher to pitch. You need time to prepare. You don’t just throw on your clothes and go out there.’’
