Dustin Pedroia

  1. Adrian Gonzalez is also denying the Yahoo! Sports report

    Red Sox owner John Henry sent an email to the Boston beat writers on Wednesday morning denying a claim made by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports that a number of star players, including Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez, asked for manager Bobby Valentine to be fired in a closed-door meeting last month with the organization’s higher-ups. And…

  2. Dustin Pedroia doesn’t think Bobby V. should be fired

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Dustin Pedroia told Rob Bradford of WEEI that he doesn’t think Bobby Valentine should be fired: “I don’t think Bobby should be fired,” he said. “Listen, we haven’t played well. I mean, that’s the bottom line. I’m not going to blame anything on Bobby, and I don’t think anyone else is. It’s on the players.…

  3. Can the Red Sox keep both Adrian Gonzalez and Bobby Valentine?

    Aug 14, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez, Bobby Valentine

    It was mostly “no comment” in the Red Sox clubhouse this afternoon after the Yahoo! Sports report stating that Red Sox players met with ownership to try to get Bobby Valentine fired as manager. CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty has the quotes: “I just want to play baseball, man,” Dustin Pedroia said, declining to confirm or deny…

  4. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…

  5. Red Sox players “blasted Bobby Valentine to owners”

    Aug 14, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    In news that will surprise absolutely no one, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports has some very juicy details about Red Sox players not loving their time with manager Bobby Valentine. According to Passan players “blasted Valentine to owners John Henry and Larry Lucchino during a heated meeting called after a text message was sent by…

  6. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:21 AM EDT

    Kendrys Morales, Albert Pujols

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…

  7. It’s all about Pedro Ciriaco as Red Sox nip Yankees

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:25 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Where has Pedro Ciriaco been all season? The answer, unfortunately for the Red Sox, is buried behind Nick Punto. But Ciriaco, given a chance to shine because of Dustin Pedroia‘s thumb injury, came through again Sunday, making another outstanding defensive play at shortstop and singling in the go-ahead run in the 10th in a 3-2…

  8. Dustin Pedroia: “The first hundred games have been (expletive)”

    Jul 28, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Reuters

    The Red Sox lost 10-3 in last night’s series opener against the Yankees. It was their second straight loss and their sixth in their last seven. They now sit at 49-51 through the first hundred games of the season and currently find themselves in last place in the American League East. Via Scott Lauber of…

  9. Dustin Pedroia doesn’t hate Bobby V. He just swallowed his dip

    Jul 20, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    pedroia ap wide

    In that “the clubhouse has turned on Bobby V.” story from last week, one of the things that was cited as evidence of the team’s disdain for Valentine was that Dustin Pedroia didn’t join him and the rest of the infield on the mound for a pitching change. Pedroia would like you all to know…

  10. Dustin Pedroia returns from disabled list

    Jul 19, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia, Cody Ross

    After 15 days off due to a thumb injury, Dustin Pedroia was activated from the disabled list Thursday and will be back in the lineup for the final game of the series against the White Sox. Mauro Gomez was sent down to make room, as the Red Sox opted to keep both Pedro Ciriaco and…

  11. It sounds like Bobby Valentine has lost the clubhouse

    Jul 13, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston has a story up today that makes it sound like Bobby Valentine has lost the Red Sox clubhouse. He has cool relations with his coaching staff, Edes reports, and he has lost the support of the veterans, assuming he ever had it: David Ortiz publicly stated his support recently for the manager,…

  12. Dustin Pedroia gets second and third opinions to confirm original diagnosis

    Jul 8, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia was placed on the disabled list with a hyperextended right thumb and according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com the former MVP received second and third opinions from doctors who confirmed the initial diagnosis. Pedroia is currently wearing a cast on his hand, but made a big deal about what a quick healer he’s…

  13. Pedro Ciriaco saves Boston’s bacon in 9-5 win

    Jul 8, 2012, 12:45 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Pedro Ciriaco is so good he even collects hits after the game ends. Making his Red Sox debut Saturday, Ciriaco went 4-for-5 with four RBI in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. His performance caused the Fenway faithful to bring back the “Pedro” chant for the first time…

  14. Red Sox place Dustin Pedroia on DL with new thumb injury

    Jul 6, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    Dustin Pedroia has played through a partially torn adductor muscle in his right thumb for much of the season, but now a “new” thumb injury has forced the Red Sox second baseman to the disabled list. Boston made the move official before tonight’s game, with manager Bobby Valentine telling reporters that Pedroia’s current injury is…

  15. Dustin Pedroia headed for disabled list with thumb injury

    Jul 5, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    Dustin Pedroia managed to avoid the disabled list after being diagnosed with a torn adductor muscle in his right thumb in late May, but he’ll have no such luck this time around. Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports that Pedroia is indeed DL-bound. The 28-year-old second baseman sat out yesterday’s game after jamming his…

  16. Dustin Pedroia needs more tests on his thumb

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    pedroia getty

    Dustin Pedroia tore a muscle in the thumb in late May and missed six games. Then he landed funny on it on Tuesday night, sat out yesterday’s game and now he needs more tests on it, which he’ll get on today’s offday.  Bobby Valentine isn’t worried, though: “Not really hurt. I just think he needs…

  17. Colby Rasmus tries to kick Dustin Pedroia on takeout slide

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Colby Rasmus kick

    I’m not a big fan of takeout slides as a rule. Toronto’s Colby Rasmus, though, definitely went above and beyond while trying to take out Boston’s Dustin Pedroia in the first inning of Wednesday’s game. After what looked like a perfectly legitimate slide initially, Rasmus decided to put in a little extra effort and kick…

  18. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  19. Dustin Pedroia expected to return to action Thursday

    Jun 20, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    pedroia getty

    Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was lifted from Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins after appearing to aggravate the torn abductor muscle in his right thumb. But he’s fine. Or at least willing to play through the pain brought on by a re-injury. According to Tony Lee of ESPN Boston, Pedroia told reporters that…

  20. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

  21. Carlos Marmol is back as the Cubs’ closer

    Jun 16, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol Getty

    Carlos Marmol notched his first save since May 2 yesterday against the Red Sox, but in typical Marmol-fashion, it wasn’t easy. Marmol gave up a one-out single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia before Mike Aviles reached on a fielding error by third baseman Luis Valbuena. He then struck out Daniel Nava looking before walking Scott Podsednik to…

  22. Cubs shut out Red Sox for first time in 94 years

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:58 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    The last time the Cubs shut out the Red Sox, Fenway Park was six years old. This year, it’s celebrating its centennial. Ryan Dempster blanked the Red Sox for seven innings Friday as part of a 3-0 Cubs victory. It was the first time the Cubs had shut out Boston since Game 5 of the…

  23. Bobby Valentine rips the umps after yesterday’s loss

    Jun 11, 2012, 9:28 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Boston Red Sox

    The Red Sox got swept by the Nats over the weekend, which likely put Bobby Valentine in a bad mood. Making it worse: the umpiring. And Valentine used yesterday’s postgame presser to rip the men in blue. He was particularly mad at what he — and everyone who watched it, PitchFx included — thought should…

  24. Dustin Pedroia avoids the DL, returns from thumb injury

    Jun 5, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Toronto Blue Jays

    UPDATE: As expected, Pedroia is back in the Red Sox’s lineup tonight, batting second and playing second base. ========= So much for Dustin Pedroia missing 3-4 weeks with a torn thumb muscle. Pedroia has remained on the active roster without playing since May 28 and now Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox…

  25. MLB draft picks 21-31: Blue Jays land potential impact reliever

    Jun 4, 2012, 9:48 PM EDT

    Blue Jays cap logo

    No. 21 – Atlanta Braves – High school right-hander Lucas Sims The Braves taking a local product? Get outta here. Sims is highly-regarded for his velocity, topping out at 97 mph on his heater, but his breaking ball is considered one of the best of from this year’s high school crop of talent. No. 22…
