Pedroia was in town last night to receive the hardware that goes along with being named MVP. Why Red and I didn’t get picked up in a limo full of hookers and escorted in to the Boston Baseball Writers dinner is still a mystery. But I digress. Napoleon Shaughnessy reports that Dustin is still the guy he was before he became a Red Sox icon.
Dustin goes on to say that he isn’t out to get those who thought his size and awkward swing would be his downfall in the majors but: “I’ll remember, obviously, who doubted me.” I guess a multi-million dollar contract makes a forgiving man out of some. The line of the night cam when he was asked about the glamour associated with Tom Brady’s success: supermodels, private jets and meeting the pope.
