Red Sox Heart And Soul HInges On Pedroia

When Dustin Pedroia injured his right wrist making a patented diving stop, New England’s  Baseball Anxiety Meter surged into the red zone. In a crazy sort of way, we have come to take our diminutive second baseman for granted as the heart and soul of this Red Sox team. He is the personification of its grit and determination, the pesky pain in the butt other teams love to hate. Oh, and did I mention he has been AL Rookie of the Year and MVP in his short 4-year career? Add in two All-Star appearances and a Gold Glove for good measure.

The Red Sox are in their typical “Katie Bar The Door” media outreach, claiming only that there was“swelling” on the back of this wrist and that there is no “problem”. Right. All we really need to know is the other tidbit they threw out at us–El Caballito will undergo X-rays today to determine the real extent of the injury.

Needless to say, this could be the biggest piece of Red Sox news all year–one way or the other. If Pedroia is out for any lengthy period of time, or even if he is hampered in his “take no prisoners” playing style, it could spell doom for this already marginal offensive team.

Let’s hope the Red Sox ‘Ministry of Information’ is telling the whole truth this time and there really is no “problem”.
