Dustin Pedroia Turns Thirty-Three Years Old Today

()Maybe we should call him 'The Sneaky Chicken' or 'The Fluorescent Show'. As he turns 33 today, Dustin Pedroia is having a 'quietly' dominant season—and, trust us, he doesn't usually do anything quietly. Through last night, Pedroia has played in 114 of the team's 118 games and is hitting .307—with an on-base percentage of .372. Recently, he comfortably plunked himself down in the lead-off spot—allowing MVP contender Mookie Betts to hit in the middle of the order. He has 12 HRs and 53 RBIs—to go along with a .451 slugging percentage and an .823 OPS. Most of these 2016 stats are above...

Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts

The coming week is a big one for the Red Sox’s hopes of making the postseason. (Nick Canelas; BP Boston) Rick Porcello continued his bounce-back season on Sunday. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) Has his year been good enough to garner Cy Young attention, though?

Red Sox 3, Indians 2: Welcome back to competitive August baseball

After being absent from this for a couple years, it’s fun to be so nervous during August baseball games again. Yeah, that wasn’t nerve-wracking at all. Nope. Not one bit. This game started off looking a lot like many of the frustrating ones that came in the team’s post-All-Star Game run. They got a strong start from their starter, in this case Drew Pomeranz, but the offense couldn’t come through against a pitcher they should pound. The frustration started to creep in as early as the third, when Dustin Pedroia knocked a single with Travis Shaw on first. The latter was sent home...

Another 'Mookie-Palooza' Propels Sox To 16-2 Romp

(AP Photo)If you're Dustin Pedroia and you collect five hits or Rick Porcello and you go seven strong innings, you think you'd be Star Of The Game. Not with Mookie Betts on the field! The Mook-Meister went 4-6, with three HRs and eight RBIs and four runs scored is a season-defining performance. Pedroia became the franchise leader in five-hit games (5) and Porcello gave up just one run for his 16th victory—but it was The Mookie Show all day long. Jackie Bradley, Jr. also had a HR and three RBIs, while Andrew Benintendi went 2-4 with an RBI. Hanley Ramirez got in on the fun with three hits...
