Red Sox offseason overview - with the Boston Globe's Gordon Edes
The James gang is projecting Pedroia to debut at .284/.355/.418, with 10 home runs, 47 doubles, 79 runs, and 72 RBIs. Those are gaudy numbers for a first-year player, and are obviously based on his minor-league output, because Pedroia struggled mightily after his late-summer callup, batting just .191 in 38 games.
