Red Sox Sign Pedroia

The Red Sox and MVP Dustin Pedroia have agreed to a six year deal worth 40 million dollars, Ken Rosenthal is reporting. The deal comes with a club option for 2015, meaning the Red Sox have him locked up through three years up arbitration and possibly three years of free agency. Pedroia hit .326 with 17 HR in 157 games, but lead the league in hits (213), runs (118), and doubles (54). Dustin Pedroia, who lives across the street from Fenway Park, has become a very popular player in Boston. His teammates love him, management loves him, and most opposing team do not have a problem him with.

As the Red Sox get older, he could become the face of the organization and the new wave of talent.
