Here's some highlights of Martinez's comments:
His desire to work for the Sox in some capacity:
"It's just a matter of time. Right now, the team has priorities that I don't need to get involved in. I think they need to get their priorities in place first and I'll help out later on with whatever. We'll find the right time."
Martinez also said, "That's what I want to do, I want to be there. To get close to Ben Cherington and [Larry] Lucchino, learn a little bit and see if I like the office or if I like more on the field."
"It's really difficult for me to choose either one. I would have loved to face Roger Clemens when he was Roger Clemens with nothing. I would have loved to face him all the time.
"I was clean. I know I was clean. That's all I can say. I was out there and they got the best out of me. Beat me or not, that was the best I had, and clean. I wish it were the same way for every one of them. Even though it was the steroid era, I never had a complaint. I think I did the best way possible for as long as I could.
"What would have happened if I had a level ground field? It's only to be guessed. This is the same body you saw, except maybe a couple of more pounds. But doing it is really difficult."
