Dustin Pedroia

  1. This hasn’t been one of Robinson Cano’s better days

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:44 PM EST

    Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano is aiming for one of the biggest contracts in baseball history as a free agent this winter, and it’s safe to say he’ll end up a very, very wealthy man. Still, two pieces of news today haven’t helped his cause at all. Most will point to Dustin Pedroia‘s seemingly under-market seven-year, $100 million…

  2. Red Sox, Dustin Pedroia agree to a contract extension

    Rob Bradford of WEEI has the news: Pedroia and Red Sox have agreed in principle on extension. Starts in 2015 goes to ’21. Comes down to approximatey 7 years for $100 million — Rob Bradford (@bradfo) July 23, 2013 And to clarify: To clarify, per source, Pedroia, Sox agree to deal to begin after last…

  3. Locking up Dustin Pedroia is more about sentiment than sense

    Jul 20, 2013, 4:35 PM EST

    Dustin Pedroia

    There’s something to be said for rewarding a star player who has been underpaid most of his career. Dustin Pedroia is one of the two faces of the Red Sox, he’s a legitimate All-Star candidate every year and it’s possible he’ll go into the Hall of Fame someday. If he were a free agent this…

  4. Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox are discussing a contract extension

    Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that second baseman Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox are discussing a contract extension “somewhere in the vicinity of” six years and $100 million. Pedroia, who turns 30 on August 17, has been one of the best second basemen in baseball this season and the Red Sox want…

  5. Jose Fernandez made history with Bob Feller, Doc Gooden

    Jose Fernandez AP

    Like everything else about last night’s All-Star game Jose Fernandez was overshadowed by Mariano Rivera, but the Marlins rookie had a pretty eventful evening too. Fernandez was the youngest All-Star pitcher at age 20 and threw a 1-2-3 sixth inning, setting down former MVP Dustin Pedroia, former MVP Miguel Cabrera, and current MLB home run…

  6. Robinson Cano leaves All-Star Game after taking a Matt Harvey fastball off his right leg

    Jul 16, 2013, 8:35 PM EST

    It’s the last thing anyone wants in an All-Star Game. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was lifted in the top of the first inning tonight at Citi Field after taking a Matt Harvey fastball — clocked at 96 mph — off the inside of his right knee. It sounded bad and looked bad, but Cano…

  7. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EST

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  9. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: AL MVP

    Jul 3, 2013, 6:26 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    The reigning MVP has some heavy-hitting competition this year. Let’s see if he can hold them off. AL OPS leaders: 1.136 – Miguel Cabrera: .368/.458/.678, 26 HR, 85 RBI, 2 SB in 323 AB 1.126 – Chris Davis: .329/.405/.721, 31 HR, 80 RBI, 0 SB in 301 AB 1.102 – David Ortiz: .320/.406/.607, 16 HR,…

    From the man who picked the Philadelphia Phillies to finish ahead of the Braves and the Kansas City Royals over the Tigers, we get this: Dustin Pedroia is my first-half AL MVP, as I told @FOXSportsDet today. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 1, 2013   We don’t know his reasoning yet.

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  14. Ron Washington “couldn’t have lived” with Dustin Pedroia beating him

    Jun 7, 2013, 9:00 AM EST

    David Ortiz Getty

    The Red Sox defeated the Rangers 6-3 last night on a walk-off three-run homer by David Ortiz in the bottom of the ninth inning. The game-winner came after Jonny Gomes doubled off left-hander Michael Kirkman to begin the inning and Rangers manager Ron Washington elected to intentionally walk Dustin Pedroia in order to face Ortiz.…

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 20, 2013, 6:22 AM EST

    Freddy Galvis

    Phillies 3, Reds 2: Aroldis Chapman is usually automatic. But he surrendered back-to-back bombs to the murderers row that is Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis as the Philly walked off Cincinnati. Heck, the inning started with Chapman walking Delmon Young on four straight pitches, so you know he wasn’t on it yesterday. And Cliff Lee…

  16. David Ortiz hits two homers, drives in six as Red Sox drub the Twins

    May 18, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    david ortiz getty

    Even at the age of 37 and less than a year separated from an Achilles injury, David Ortiz can still hit with the best of them. The slugger entered tonight’s game against the Twins with a .999 OPS, including five home runs and 23 RBI in 98 trips to the plate. Since joining the club…

  17. Will Middlebrooks hits three homers as Red Sox crush Blue Jays 13-0

    Will Middlebrooks; Mike Napoli

    Third baseman Will Middlebrooks hit three homers and doubled Sunday in Boston’s 13-0 rout in Toronto. The 24-year-old Middlebrooks became the first player to hit three homers in a game this year, and he’s the youngest player to accomplish the feat since the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen on Aug. 1, 2009.  He was the first member of the…

  18. Blue Jays two-hit Red Sox in 5-0 shutout

    Apr 6, 2013, 3:56 PM EST

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ probably would have opened the season as the most well-compensated pitcher in Triple-A if Ricky Romero hadn’t struggled so mightily this spring. Inserted into the Blue Jays’ rotation instead, Happ struck out six in 5 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a two-hit shutout of the Red Sox on Saturday. The…

  19. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera help lead Yankees to first win of season

    Apr 4, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    It felt like old times tonight in the Bronx, as Andy Pettitte tossed eight innings of one-ball and Mariano Rivera notched the save as the Yankees topped the Red Sox 4-2 for the team’s first victory of the 2013 season. Pettitte was in control for most of the night, scattering eight hits while striking out…

  21. Report: Red Sox could trade Jacoby Ellsbury, re-sign Cody Ross

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:25 PM EST

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Upside, shmupside. Sources told the Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham that the Red Sox are considering trading Jacoby Ellsbury and re-signing Cody Ross to play right field, with the newly signed Shane Victorino taking over in center field. Ellsbury, the runner-up for AL MVP honors in 2011, is a free agent after the season and is…

  22. Red Sox lineup a whole lot deeper with Mike Napoli in the middle

    Dec 3, 2012, 11:43 AM EST

    Mike Napoli

    Mike Napoli to Boston has long seemed like destiny. That he’s been such a roaring success at Fenway is part of it: Napoli has hit .306/.397/.710 with seven homers in 62 lifetime at-bats in Boston. The Red Sox initially tried to acquire Napoli in 2010, when the Angels weighed parting with him before the deadline.…

    The Red Sox have plenty of holes to fill on their roster this winter, but they hope to make some time to keep one of their cornerstone players in the fold for the long haul. Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston was told by several league sources that the Red Sox plan to discuss a possible…

  24. Dustin Pedroia is philosophical about the Bobby Valentine era

    Nov 6, 2012, 5:02 PM EST

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    The first really public strife involving Bobby Valentine and the Sox last year came when Dustin Pedroia called him out in the media for making disparaging comments about Kevin Youkilis (“that’s not how we go about our stuff here”). In light of that — and in light of other rumored issues between Pedroia and Valentine…

  25. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…
