Red Sox for life: Dustin Pedroia had a few missteps lately – but who in a Red Sox uniform hasn’t? Pedroia is only 29 and has the potential to join the likes of Jim Rice, Carl Yastrzemski and Ted Williams as lifetime Red Sox Hall of Famers. While he may not be ready or willing to be a team captain – Pedroia has the tools to be a franchise player. His effort, skill and willingness to win has never been questioned – an all-too rarity these days at Fenway Park. Pedroia’s current deal runs through (a team option) 2015 – time to add another five years.
