Pedroia signed to Six Year Extension!
Hot off the presses…courtesy of your friendly neighborhood photographer (the Big I)
First of all, this picture is ripe for a caption contest. A penny for your caption (minus the penny of course)…
No, but seriously, I would love to hear what your caption for this photo would be…the possibilties are endless. Secondly, you won’t find this photo anywhere else (at least for a while. This was just taken, downloaded, and uploaded in record time). Bravo, Big I, Bravo…
I have to admit, when I think of Dustin signing his extension, I picture him sitting down at a desk, signing the contract, while quoting Lauren from the Hills (season 1, episode 1),
“This is my chance to make it all happen, in the one city, where they say dreams come true.”
No, really…I could actually picture him saying this.
And although, this doesn’t really qualify as another “piece of hardware” that Pedroia can add to his mantle following his MVP, Gold Glove, Silver Slugger season, I still gotta think he’s pretty happy about this one.
Earlier today, we announced that we inked Dustin to a new six year extension that will keep him in a Red Sox uniform through the 2014 season, with a club option to keep him with the team for the 2015 season as well.
How do I feel about this? As a fan? As a member of the Front Office? As a baseball enthusiast?
So good! So good! So good!!!
Dustin plays the game hard every single day. You can tell he’s giving his all on every pitch and on every single ball that comes his way. He’s gritty, he’s scrappy, he’s (plenty) confident, and his spirit is infectious.
We’ve gone through many secondbasemen in recent Red Sox history. Now, thanks to some great scouting, player development, and a heck of a lot of hard work and determination on Dustin’s part, we can take a deep sigh of relief in knowing that it will be one position we won’t have to worry about for quite some time.
Congratulations, Dustin on a well deserved extension! I’m so glad we’ll all have front row seats to six more years of the “lasers show.”
All the best from a very happy Front Office,
