Remember when Ronald Reagan unleashed the awesome might of the US armed forces against Grenada, the speck of an island nation? Or when the Brits stormed the flimsy Falklands? Or when Pedro Martinez first went one-on-one with the Seattle Mariners?
Talk about your mismatches. Just as American and British forces almost certainly would go 10 for 10 in rematches against their punchless island foes, Martinez yesterday improved to a perfect 10-0 against the Mariners as he led the Red Sox to a 4-1 triumph before a bundled-up 32,385 at Fenway Park.
