Dustin Pedroia may have struggled in a 26-game stretch as Boston’s leadoff hitter in 2009, but he’s ready to give it another try should Bobby Valentine ask. WEEI has the quote:
I hit. 214? It’s good because if they would have kept me in another 20 games I would have hit .414. Ride the wave. It’s a wave, dude, How’s a heart beat go? It goes up and down, just like baseball. If you flatline you’re dead. If you flatline in baseball, I’ve never seen it in baseball. Ride the wave, dude. Surf is up.
