Dustin Pedroia Gets Mad After Miguel Cabrera’s High-Five Fake-Out (GIF)

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia seemingly looks for motivation wherever he can find it. After the 5-foot-8 infielder was deemed to small to play as he grew up, Pedroia is still feeding from that gigantic chip on his shoulder even as racks up accolades.
