Pedro protected teammates, much like Arroyo, actually even
more. He did dust guys fairly often and was very skillful
at it --- knocking them down without hitting them.
Exhibit A - Matsui in 2004 ALCS.
I actually think Pedro's NBP numbers are lower just because
batters are fully aware of how he throws and much more apt ro
bail, whereas they wouldn't with Arroyo. That accounts for some
of the difference. Getting hit at 85mph is different than 95.
