Dustin Pedroia grabs a hot dog

Did I mention that spring training is a bit different than the regular season?  I mean, I thought it was neat that some Dodgers players took a shortcut down the concourse at Tempe Diablo Stadium last weekend.  Turns out that was nothing: Dustin Pedroia went out onto the concourse at City of Palms Park and bought three hot dogs during Saturday’s game:

“I was hungry,” Pedroia said. “The Red Sox have no food.”

When a staffer offered to get him something, Pedroia said: “I don’t need any help. I’m a grown athlete.”

At least he wasn’t in uniform, which probably would have caused a mob scene.

And I’m guessing that the post game clubhouse spread shows up a bit earlier the next time the Red Sox play.
