Source: Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images North America The Boston Red Sox and second baseman Dustin Pedroia are closing on a contract extension. According to major league sources, the Red Sox made a formal offer to Pedroia and his New York-based agents, Sam and Seth Levinson, over the All-Star break in New York. Yahoo! Sports reported the deal could be in the $100 million range and average more than $20 million a year. Pedroia declined to talk about his contract status after the Red Sox win over the New York Yankees on Friday night. “This is all I know,” said Pedroia, who will turn 30 on Aug 17. “These guys are my family. If it got to that point, it would be great.” Pedroia is being paid $10 million this season and has another $10 million owed him in 2014, the last year of the six-year, $40.5 million deal he signed after his MVP season. There is an $11 million club option in 2015, with a $500,000 buyout.
