Dustin Pedroia is trolling us: An appreciation of the legend

It's a laser show for your brain. Dustin Pedroia may have a tell. Last month, the Red Sox’ starting second baseman, folk hero, and possible troll appeared on WEEI’s ‘The Bradfo Show,’ producing this writeup on NESN: Go ahead. Talk about this, that and the other thing. Dustin Pedroia doesn’t care. Pedroia has earned four Gold Glove awards in his 10-year career, yet several defensive metrics pointed to 2015 as a down year from a fielding perspective. The Boston Red Sox second baseman is blocking out the chatter related to such in-depth analysis, though. He’s instead looking at...

'You have no idea how golden you are': Why host families are the unsung heroes of the minor leagues

"You people have no idea how golden you are," Pedroia said to Marc and Joyce. "We appreciate what you do so much."No need for the Shacks to pat themselves on the back. A four-time major league All-Star and former MVP did it for them."That, to me, made the whole thing worth it," Marc said. "They're living out their dream. We're just trying to help make it easier for them."

Daily Red Sox Links: Dustin Pedroia, Joe Kelly, Eduardo Rodriguez

Today's links look at the problems with preseason projections, the group that makes up the starting pitching depth, and some player already down in Ft. Myers. The early projections are optimistic about the Red Sox, but don't take that as gospel. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) On the positive side of things, they should have another very productive year from their middle infielders. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) Joe Kelly probably isn't going to be great, but it's certainly possible that he'll be a serviceable number five starter. (Nick Canelas; BP Boston) Chances are, the team will...

Daily Red Sox Links: Rusney Castillo, Dustin Pedroia, Junichi Tazawa

Today's links look at the potential bounce-backs from Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, Carl Willis' thoughts on the staff, and the minor-league managers. A big key for the Red Sox in 2016 will be Rusney Castillo getting to the form the team expected when he was signed. (Alex Skillin; BP Boston) Perhaps the biggest key is bounce-backs from Hanely Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. But can they expect it? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Dustin Pedroia has seen what the defensive metrics said about his 2016, and he's not concerned with the numbers. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Boston will have to figure...
