We have heard rumors that the Boston Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia have progressed in talks about a contract extension. Well, those rumors are true, and they are in fact making progress on getting one done.
According to an industry source, the Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia
are have made “progress” in talks to sign the second baseman to a
contract extension. Talks have between the team and the player have been
ongoing since the offseason.
Pedroia is in the fourth year of a six-year, $40.5 million deal that carries a team option of $11 million for the Red Sox.
That should make you feel all tingly and good inside...but not too tingly, that would just be weird.
Lock Pedey up for 10 more years, I am sure no one would argue that. There are no details on length and value of the extension, but I would guess somewhere in the 4-6 year, $15-17 million per season range. Just a guess.
