This spring Pedroia will need to work on his hitting. He only hit .296. He hit .326 in the '08 season! Why was he having a slump. His fielding was great last year. He also hit 15 Home runs. There's no doubt in my mind that he shouln't do great this season.

I was reading a book on Dustin a few weeks ago. I gotta tell ya, he seems like a great guy and a great player. He has been doubted that he wouldn't get drafted or even looked at. But he can tell all those scouts were to stick it! Because now look at him. Starting Second Baseman for the Boston Red Sox. I mean that's like every kids dream. Or at least it's mine.

I would give anything to just meet or spend the day with Dustin. He has made me work harder to be a great baseball player. Because when I watch him it's like watching a legend in the making!

So Dustin if your reading this please, e-mail me.
