    The Red Sox are not sure if Dustin Pedroia will report to camp with the rest of the position players over the weekend:

    The most comical scene Wednesday surrounded infield prospect Jeter Downs, acquired from the Dodgers, who became an overnight fan favorite and media darling, named after a certain Yankee icon who’s going to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in July.

    “Hey Jeter!’’ one fan yelled. “You’re better than Derek!’’

    If nothing else, one day, there really will be a Jeter cheered at Fenway Park.

    “You get bombarded with this whole name thing,’’ said Downs, who grew up a Yankee fan with his father a Red Sox fan. “It’s pretty cool to be traded for arguably a top-five player in the game. I guess my mom knew what she was doing when she named me Jeter. She just liked how he was, the way he played the game, so she gave me the name.

    “I obviously have the name, so I know of had to be a fan of his.’’

    He needs to renounce his Jeter fandom or be traded.

    Roenicke talked to Dustin Pedroia, who is still dealing with knee issues following his setback and won’t be reporting to Spring Training on Monday with the rest of the position players. #RedSox

    Yep, as much as I think trading Mookie a year early was a mistake, it would be an even bigger mistake to outbid the field to sign him to a ridiculous long term deal. I just wanted to see Mookie one more year with the rest of the core squad and make a strong run on 2020.

    I thought it made a lot of sense to keep Mookie this year and reset next year. That said, it also makes a lot of sense to do what the Sox did. Either way, I agree about not signing Mookie to a ridiculous long term dea.
