Let me make this clear. Adrian Gonzalez is an All-Star. He is a crucial member of the Red Sox and a great player. The Boston Red Sox would not be as good without him. What I am saying is that so far this year Dustin Pedroia has been more valuable than Adrian Gonzalez.
Gonzalez is a great hitter, the best on the Red Sox. But Pedroia isn't that far behind and has the advantage in fielding, speed and leadership, making him a more complete package.
