Second base -- Dustin Pedroia: Despite a few dings in his image following l?affaire text message, Pedroia remains the soul of a franchise desperately seeking more heart. Robinson Cano and Aaron Hill may have more gaudy numbers, but the swagger Pedroia brings to the clubhouse can be contagious with the proper mix of players surrounding him. Leader? No. But the energy that stirs this team is even more vital as it rounds into a youth movement. Would we trade him for Price? Um, yeah. But otherwise, there’s no need to look any further.
