    Ah yes, if only Pedroia were as bad-ass tough as your basic internet poster.

    At this point, I honestly don't even care to hear what the setback is.

    Pedey is toast.

    Thanks for the laser memories.

    Yeh. It certainly sounds like a few here are so badass that they think they could ever qualify to carry Pedey's bags?

    When he first started with the Sox, we all said he just couldn't cut it at the big show.

    He dirtdogged it right past that BRUTAL START, & proceeded to become Rookie of the year, helping us to win a WS. Another in 2013.

    You know the numbers.

    The "thanks, & don't let the door hit you on the arss" pissy attitude toward him is pretty STUNNING, but whatever.

    Such is the attitude of those who have never done, & never fought through a single injury to ever play a single game at anything.

    Pretty snarky shit towards a guy who gave us so many LIFETIME memories.

    I don't know about you, but I can go back to '67 as a very young boy, and remember how I felt playing stickball on the streets of Allston & Brighton.

    Memories of Pedey & Company will hopefully last me another 30 years. This is the STUFF that brings back memories of a lifetime.

    I absolutely don't get the snark?

    Yeh! He made a few mistakes. He even inexplicably defended the shithead who ended his career.
    Whatever!

    There are time when I wish this forum had a "Like" button and this is one of them.

    Unfortunately this is one of the Red Sox traditions: When a former great player is down and out and lying on the floor the fans kick him toward the door. If he ends up crossways to the door and can't get through the door they kick him harder until he fits through the damn door!

    Most people are not mad a Pedey. Just mad at the fact of his guaranteed salary. The person to blame here would be the GM who gave him that long contract. You can't fault the player for wanting to collect. If you were all in this situation you'd take the money

    Alex, I'll take $56M for sitting on my ass.....the answer is "Who is....". Is that brutal?

    Pedey took FAR less than market value in AAV to stay in Boston for longer. He played the game the right way, maximized his lack of physical size and turned it into a great career. His lack of longevity likely killed his HOF chances, but had he stayed healthy and produced at his usual clip, hed have been pretty close. Still, his 51.4 WAR is 22nd All Time as a second baseman. Of the 21 ahead of him, 14 are HOFers. The other 7 are Willie Randolph, Chase Utley, Ian Kinsler, Jeff Kent, Robby Cano, Lou Whitaker and Bobby Grich. There are SEVEN HOF second basemen who have less WAR than Pedroia. This is a guy who gets his number retired

    If you call 'sitting on my ass' sustaining a career-ending battlefield injury, going through operations and rehab and trying to make it back...

    Trying my best to be non political about this, but this is a really bad take.

    It's freakin baseball. That's why we post here endlessly. It's a distraction from all the other bullshit that happens in our lives. No reason to minimize what it means to us for an argument.

    I was kicking him around when he was still performing at a high level, because I believe the end was going to be this bad. It was just considered buzzarding though.

    Great post.

    There's little loyalty in sports, with the least of it, often coming from 'fans'.

    I see the solider card has been played now as well. Amazing.
