Meet Dustin Pedroia's new favorite player

Apr 27, 2010, 6:33 PM EDT

Reliever Fabio Castro arrived in Boston’s clubhouse Tuesday only to be put to the test immediately.
No, not on the mound.
5-foot-10 Marco Scutaro had the supposedly 5-foot-9 Dustin Pedroia and the 5-foot-7 Castro stand back-to-back to figure out who was taller.
According to the Boston Globe:
“The winner by an inch or so was Pedroia, who pumped his fist in celebration as Mike Lowell looked on and snickered.”
Castro, who is back in the majors for the first time since 2007, is one of two players in the majors currently listed at 5-foot-7, David Eckstein being the other. Only 5-foot-6 Reds reliever Daniel Ray Herrera is shorter.

    They better get some pitching . That staff era must be around eight and rising . Beckett was bombed again last night . It’s good for him they were stupid enough to extend his contract.

    And to think that the utility man in the minors is 5’7 as well. Check out Zach Gentile, he played in their spring training games. Solid prospect that is supposed to be the heir to predoia.

    Bite Me. The RedSox will play who ever is the right person for the job. They do not discriminate against players like others will.

    “The Blosux will play who ever is the right man for the job” You’re as dumb as a bag of hammers. It won’t take long before they’re called the Billy Barty Sux . You must also be a runt . Get used to the bottom little guy , because that’s where those scumbags are going to stay .
