    Re: M.O.P. Dustin Pedroia

    how many games did pedey bat 3 or 4th this season....

    Geo, thanks for bringing this up.  Pedey batter 3rd 244 times, and had 32 RBIs,  Cano batted 3rd 228 times and had 17 RBIs.

    So in an additional 16 ABs, Pedey had 15 more RBIs than Cano, the league leader in RBIs at 2nd.

    Thanks for reminding the crowd what an RBI machine he was.

    Why do threads started by the mentally impaired get the most responses and last longer than other threads?



    Because we need to make fun of someone until the aura of BV leaves the team.  And who better to fill that role than the chief Bobby Bootlicker?

     

    BTW, what part of Yonkers are you from?

    Pedroia is overrated in the sense that he is very popular , has gotten a very good press and is perceived as a gritty little overachiever. An objective look would show that he is a very good , all around ball player, who always gives his best.  Overall , he is not as good as some think he is , but a valuable player who should not be traded unless we get a really good offer.



    Pedey was fighting injuries all season and still hit a solid 290.  Healthy all year he could top 300 and hit 20 or more homers.  He is the heart and soul of the team and never quit during the season's miserable finish, unlike some of his lodge brothers.  In my opinion Pedroia must remain a Red Sox player for life.

     



    I agree with you Fred that Pedroia should be a Sox player for life but given the FO track record with stars like him...I doubt that he will remain a Sox player his entire career.

    You have to admit, they've been right about cutting ties with players before they become a liability, more often than not.

    They did the right thing with Pedro, Damon and Manny. The next couple of years will tell us of they did the right thing with Beckett and Gonzalez.

    If Pedey insists that his next conrtract be for 10 years, I expect the Sox FO to tell him it's been fun, but no.


    That said, everything Pedrioa said after he signed his last contract tells me he's one of the few players that isn't intent on wringing every last dime out of a contract negotiation.

    Time will tell...
