Everyone's favorite cocky, Portuguese, undersized second baseman, Dustin Pedroia, just won the AL Rookie of the Year. I think that Terry Francona should get at least half this award. I was calling for Alex Cora (that's right, THE Alex Cora) when Dusty was hitting .182 in May. The only thing keeping him from not batting his weight was the fact that dude weighed 150 lbs soaking wet with a brick in his pocket. But Tito stuck with him and it paid off big time as the diminutive middle infielder helped the team to a World Series title. I'm sure that first-time Gold Glover Youk was also very pleased that Pedroia stuck around because I hear that Dusty is now the center of clubhouse mockery and shenanigans instead of him and his ugly, ugly face. Also it was revealed that Dusty played the last two months with a broken wrist, what a bad ass.
P.S. We scooped the shit out of ESPN on this one.
