Last Week Was The Time To Lock Up Dustin Pedroia

From Baseball Think Factory, 3/17/13:

Now Is the Time to Lock Up Dustin Pedroia

Dustin Pedroia is a 29-year-old second basemen who is signed for the next two years and with a reasonable team option for 2015. Normally, I would be against inking such a player to an extension, but I think I would make an exception for Pedroia. Here’s why:

—First and foremost, Pedroia is the face of the team and a really excellent player. In his first 6 years as a full-time player he’s put up 31.1 fWAR. He’s beloved by the fans, well-liked by his peers, and seemingly has an exemplary work ethic.

Exemplary work ethic. Well-liked. Beloved. So let’s take away his freedom.

Why are they talking about giving him an extension? I think his hair looks fine.

His hair doesn’t look fine. He does look very “Boston” though.
