*The three runs Pedroia scored gave him 101 for the season, leaving him two shy of matching Bobby Doerr's 103 in 1950 for the most by a Sox second baseman.

This kid is amazing....

Jeff Passan - clearly the second team now

I guess this is kind of like in the winter of 2005-6 when the Yankees kept saying all off season how they were happy to have Bubba Crosby as their CF. And then the Yankess swept in and signed Damon.

Well Passan must feel like Bubba right now. Gordon Edes is headint to Yahoo! as their national baseball writer. A huge step up if you ask me.
