    Re: A sour taste towards Pedroia

    We love Pedroia, and we should all be thrilled he is on our team. Simple observation with the team blowing chunks and all that we now turn on our most beloved.

    He has not helped himself with some of his comments, but we would not even hear them if the team were playing better. His numbers? So they are below the norm, the better than average norm we are accustomed. So what.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: A sour taste towards Pedroia : Seattle already has a big-name player in Felix Hernandez and big-time former top hitting prospects in Jesus Montero, Dustin Ackley, Michael Saunders and Justin Smoak, as well as big-time prospects in Taijuan Walker, Danny Hultzen, Nick Franklin, James Paxton and Mike Zunino. Dustin Pedroia or Jacoby Ellsbury might land Seattle's Jason Vargas, who won his 13th game of the season today when the lefthander limited the Los Angeles Angels to one run over 8.1 innings. The Mariners may have little interest in Dustin Pedroia, who has been valued at 1.8 WAR* this season as the diminutive secondbaseman approaches his 29th birthday this week. Seattle has less expensive 24-year-old options at second base in college teammates Kyle Seager, who has been valued at 2.3 WAR this season, and Dustin Ackley, who has been valued at 1.5 WAR this year after posting a WAR of 2.7 in 2011. * Wins Above Replacement as reported at FanGraphs

    You are so wrong. Elles and Pedroia would make them instant contenders in 2013 even without Felix. However trading Pedroia only garauntees one thing, a huge hole at second-base for Boston.

    Guys...no questioning Felix's ability or potential impact. But trading both Ellsbury and Pedroia? About the most appearances in a season you'll get out of Felix is 33 or 34. That leaves 130 games where you would have neither him or two MVP-caliber players. Are you crazy?

    Dustin Pedroia's line of .278/.335/.414/.749 and Jacoby Ellsbury's line of .259/.310/.371/.680 would take a significant hit in the American League West playing half their games at Safeco Field as they approach their 30th birthdays in 2013.

    People forget how hard it is to hit at Safeco Field. Here are the 2012 road stats for the Red Sox and the Mariners:

    BOS 53 G, 2018 PA, .253/.308/.406./.705, 231 R (4.36 rpg)
    SEA 62 G, 2455 PA, .249/.301/.405/.715, 290 R (4.68 rpg)

    Pedroia is no leader.

    I love the way Pedroia play's the gm but a leader would not undermine his manager the way he has, he is no leader.

    Re: A sour taste towards Pedroia

      Pedroia is five foot nothing and generates power by swinging from his heels more often than not.  He states as a goal to hit twenty home runs, when his body and stats would be better to let home runs happen and aim for .300.  He plays hard, but metrics indicate his range as a fielder is average for a second baseman, specifically up the middle.    Line drives and bloopers sail over his head, while six feet second basemen can haul more of those balls in.
      Comments made this year, lack of comments made last year when the team was in trouble in September makes the image of being a "leader" more that of a fond title than a deserved accolade.  Pedroia is an all out player, often to his detriment.  That style coupled with his size does not portray healthy images of him when he reaches the young and mid thirties.
       As to leadership, check out his home town of Woodland, California.  Many there scoff at the portrayal of Pedroia as a team first player and team leader.

    And why wouldn't everyone be tradeable? Is the $190M payroll getting big bang for the buck?

    [QUOTE]Don't get me wrong, I am glad that we have him.  But, Carfado's statement in last night game summary "as usual, one person came to play, Pedroia who got a single in the 9th", sent me over the edge. Is Pedroia God in a disguise?  That is the way he his treated. 1)  His numbers this year are way below his norm.  Just as much as most other players on the team.  Batting only .270+, only 9 HR.  That is horrible for him.  Yet, we never hear a word about him.  We only hear about Lester and Becket.  Gonzalez' lack of power.  How Aviles shouldn't be our SS.  Crawford.   Everything and anything realted to Valentine. But, NEVER ANYTHING about Pedi despite his very poor numbers this year as well. 2)  As bad as we are this year, I don't see this team as a "lazy team".  Most of the guys I see hustle and show they really care and have an attitude that they really want to win.  "They show up every night too".   Salty, Ross, Middlebrooks, Ciriaco, Ellsbury (maybe too much with last night running mistake), Papi.   Even Lester, as poor as he has been, you can see real frustration with him in wanting to do better. Do you think Carafado would have written the samething if say Ross got a single in the 9th?  Why not?  He hs shown great attitude and hustle and his numbers are better than Pedi's with less AB's.   But, you would never hear a statement like that about someone like Ross.  Only PEDI. 3)  The snitch (which I think this entire story is stupid to begin with, but to prove a point....)  when they thought it was Youk, the story carried on for weeks about it maybe being him.  Recently, when word came out that it may have been Pedi, it was dropped like a bad habit. 4)  As well documented, his atttiude and words at the begining of the season about "how we do things around here" were never addressed.  There was a never a fine, or even a public apology by Pedi.  If there was an apology, he should have made it public.  His comment was made public.  But, no way !!  For he is Dustin Pedroia !! He is also regarded by many as being the only "untouchable/untradeable" on the team. Yes, he is good and I am glad that we have him.  But, the way he is treated by both the fans and the media, despite having just a poor of season as the others, and acting like he is really "IT", it is hard not to be buidling a "sour taste" towards him a little bit.  Wake up fans and media, he has been just as much of the problem this year as many of the other players.   But, you would never know it.
