Every year an injury comes up and Pedroia is forced to rehab if he wants to try and make a return the following season. His career has been plagued with injuries and Pedroia’s status as one of the best 2B in MLB fell apart.
Just look at Pedroia’s numbers. He has nearly 2,000 hits, 140 home runs, 725 RBIs and a batting average just shy of .300 and that’s with two full seasons missed.
Pedoria has suffered another setback with his knee and is now questioning if he should try and make a return yet again.
He shouldn’t. It would be insane for Pedroia to do so.We have seen Pedroia fail each and every year. He is 36 years old and is well past his prime.
Pedoria should have retired years ago. At least then he would have gone out in a better fashion. Now it is just sad to see Pedroia try year in and year out and just continue to fail.
This has to be the final straw. The Red Sox and Pedroia need to move on. This would be the perfect time for Pedroia to make the jump from the field to the dugout.
With Alex Cora gone Boston’s coaching staff will be undergoing some changes. Why not make Pedroia a bench coach and give him some experience?
So please retire Dustin Pedroia. We want to see you in a Red Sox uniform, we just don’t want you to be playing.
