Pedie is Golden

Dustin Pedroia was honored with the 2008 Gold Glove at Second Base on Thursday. Since Craig Biggio was my all-time favorite player, it's awesome that my current favorite player can be recognized similiarly. Pedie's quoted courtesy of WEEI:

“I really didn’t think about it,” he said of winning the award. “I take pride in my defense, it’s a huge part of my game. In fact, my biggest (priority) is defense. I need to be extremely important to our pitching staff. I put in a ton of time with Luis Alicea and Alex Cora from Day One. It’s only my second year playing second base. I took extra ground balls every single day and it definitely paid off.”
