Take A Deep Breath, AL East, Dustin Pedroia is Coming Back
Oh, every team who has played the Red Sox in the last 1 1/2 months has been so lucky. You know why? Because they haven't been facing arguably the best second baseman in baseball, Dustin Pedroia (right). Pedroia's dreams of hitting 20 home runs this year were crushed on June 26 when he fouled a ball off his foot, breaking his foot. But if Dustin Pedroia returns to MLB Tuesday, next week as he is planning, maybe his dreams aren't too crushed. Dustin Pedroia is having a very good season so far, at .292/12/41, he will need to be amazing over the next 2 months if he wants to reach that, but it is possible. Dustin Pedroia is my favorite player and I want to see the look on the opponent's face when this guy standing at 5'9" hits 3 home runs in a game, as he did in Colorado earlier this year.
