In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
Would you trade him? I know if the right deal comes along it would be a no brainer (maybe).
However is Pedroia to important to the team right now?
Is he expendable because he is now 29 and due to injuries the past few years?
Do you hold for another year? He is signed thru 2015, club option.
His numbers last year were just slightly lower than his career numbers.
Is he the one piece you keep at least thru this year since he is (might be, could be) the leader on the field and in the clubhouse?
IMHO he is the guy that Farrell leans on to be the leader on the team since if he is traded who else is that much needed leader.
I wouldn't trade him unless the Sox get blown away by what they'd get in return.
Unfotunately, guys that play as hard as Pedey do get hurt.
I wouldn't trade him simply because of his injury history.
He's got a very affordable contract, considering his talent.
[/QUOTE] i remember asking after his MVP season if his all out style(ala Griffey) would take effect down the road..
