Lap it up Boston fans because it’s about the only time I’ll ever give the Red Sox love. But it’s tough for me not to give big props to Dustin Pedroia – all 5 foot 9, 180 pounds of him – for winning the American League MVP yesterday. Dude is my size and he’s binging home some of the most coveted hardware in all of sports; the Gold Glove, the Silver Slugger and now the MVP.
Well, ok. He’s got two and a half inches and ten pounds on me. But still. 😆
Not only that but he’s the first second baseman to win the MVP award since Nellie Fox did it in 1959. That’s the first dude since black and white highlight footage. That’s the first dude since other dudes were named Nellie! (Well, except Nelly of course.)
Way to go stud. You’re a credit to diminutive stature!
