We already know that Jonathan Papelbon + microphone = awesome. Lately, however, it seems that Pedroia’s getting all the good lines. Check this bit from redsox.com, in which The Elf offers up some advice for his former WBC teammates who’ll be facing Matsuzaka in the next round:

“Daisuke is lucky I’m not there,” quipped Pedroia. “I’d hit a line drive right off his back, and you guys can put that in your paper. I would hit him right in his back. He better hope the Red Sox don’t trade him.”

Sounds like he’s feeling just fine to me.
