    Nice idea but it is unrealistic with the amount of scar tissue on that guy.

    Stick a fork in him.

    Well, a lot of Pedroia's issues are contact related (with the ground, a cleat, a base, etc.). I'm not sure resting Pedroia will prevent him from hurting himself while diving for a ball.

    Sure, but it's not uncommon for guys coming off surgery to have some extra rest days either. I'm sure our crack medical staff will figure it out!

    Sure, he's going to get more rest days going forward. I'm not sure it will be more likely to prevent him from getting injured though.

    Methinks he'll return at end of April.

    My compliment to the poll-maker for a poll that has intelligible and reasonable choices.

    Why rush back ??? I don't give a rip when he comes back if he's not healed completely ...Sorry but Pedey is reminding me of a scrappy player who just can never stay healthy than rushes back time and time again ...Let the Chavis time start next year ....maybe even September if Pedey is once again dinged up like he always is .

    Chavis can barely handle 3B and you want to move him to a position that requires more mobility?

    Dombrowski did buy Pedroia more recovery time this week by signing Nunez, so this is no longer the issue it has been all off-season...

    With Nunez available, I would delay him until July. No need to rush him back.

    No need to set any sort of timetable.

    If he's ready in July, he comes back in July.
    If he's ready in May, he comes back in May.
    If he isn't ready until September, he comes back in September. ...

    Let's hope that our crackerjack medical team gave him a thorough exam and that Nunez will be healthy to start the season. It wouldn't be the first time that we signed a wounded duck.

    I have not heard anything new about this "signing". Has he taken the physical? If so, I hope they took lots of advanced images of his fucked-up knee and that someone competent reviewed them.

    If he does pass or has passed the physical, is he ready to start camp and participate in normal ST activities right away? He was still rehabbing in December so it could reasonably be assumed that he is not ready yet.

    If that knee is not ready to go now I say pass on Nunez. We need a healthy bat and placeholder for Pedroia now.

    Of course, if all goes well, he comes on board and rakes until Pedroia returns and rakes himself. Nunez can spell not only Devers at 3rd as Moon has suggested, but he can give X a blow at short. X has stated as recently as this week that he tires in the second half. Nunez can help keep him fresh if things go well. Of course Nunez can sub for Pedroia as needed too. I don't want to see him in the outfield unless it is a true emergency.

    Overall, Lots of things have to break right for the Sox.

    We'll see.

    Dombrowski would not comment today on whether Nunez passed or has even taken his physical.

    Nunez said there's no deal yet.

    I'm not sure what to make, if anything, on those comments.

    Reportedly, the deal has a player option for the 2nd year, with a buyout, so it essentially becomes a 2 year deal. No word yet on the dollar amount.

    Micro fracture surgery .....for any athelete is pretty much the kiss of death for mobility cutting ,jumping ,pivoting like he was use to doing .I love Pedey he's a legend ....his time as an elite player has been over awhile now ...this puts an explanation point on an amazing player and career .

    Really? Micro fracture surgery is drastic, but guys have come back from it. Maybe not 100 percent, but 95 percent of pedroia is still a pretty good second basemen.
