Congrats to Dustin Pedroia – AL Rookie of the Year!

24 out 28 first place votes – 132 votes? Huge!

When I had to drink Dustin’s tequila – I didn’t sweat it. I wanted him to be in top shape the next day. It was, after all, the World Series. Read about it here.

Plus – I like tequila.

But I digress…This is about Dustin!

  • His fielding (remember the diving stop on a grounder by Miguel Tejada helped preserve Clay Buchholz’s no-hitter in September?),
  • His hitting (.317, 50 RBIs),
  • His base running.

Well done – well earned!

Just a reminder to all the doubters and haters – one of our other hotshots – Jacoby Ellsbury wasn’t even eligible for rookie status. Turns out, he hadn’t played a sufficient number of games yet to be officially – a rookie! Hoo-haa, just wait till next year.
