Pedroia’s Tough All-Star Decision

For Immediate Release

July 12, 2009




BOSTON, MA–Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia issued the following statement today regarding the All-Star Game:


 “After consulting with Tito, Theo, Phyllis Merhige of Major League Baseball and my wife, Kelli, I have decided to withdraw from this year’s All-Star Game in St. Louis.  I will instead stay in Boston with my wife as we tend to a family health matter.


This was certainly not an easy decision.  I have a tremendous amount of respect for the game of baseball and for the All-Star Game and am incredibly honored that the fans voted me this year’s starting second baseman for the American League.  I am disappointed that I will not be able to enjoy the amazing experience with the other All-Stars, especially with my Red Sox teammates, but it is important that I put my family first at this time.


I want to thank Major League Baseball as well as Tito and Theo for supporting me in this decision.  I also want  to thank the fans for their understanding and the continued support they have shown throughout my career.”




RSN Nation supports Pedey 100% My prayers and best wishes to Dustin and Kelli.


Hey insider Please trade for Victor Martinez Please trade whatever prospects you have to except Bard! then he can play first twice a week especially when they play on turf as it is harder on Mikes hip. He can catch twice a week against righties since tek still kind of stinks against righties and he can DH once a week against a tough lefty for Papi thats five games a week he is in there and youk misses no time and Mikey stays relatively healthy. Some feed back on this post would be greatful

HIPOCRITE !!!!! I just think back to when I seen him on T.V. blabbing about how Alex Rodriguez “should be banned from baseball for a year” and how “I would be ashamed, for myself and my family” blah blah blah CRAP !!!!!!!!!!! What a damn HIPOCRITE!!! What he had done in 2003 is NO different that what happened to A-Rod. He never thought his name would come out since A-Rods news was soooooo “headline news”. Well it came out HIPOCRITE, just like it did for A-Rod. I wonder…………..are we going to see David Ortiz man-up like A-Rod did and at least have a news conference, just to say it happened or is he going to be a little **tch and hide in the closet until the off-season. I expected to hear Manny’s name come out sooner or later. He is the definition of a punk-*ss overpaid THUG!!
