Dustin Pedroia quickly became a core member of the Boston Red Sox, embodying the attitude of Red Sox fans on the field and constantly delivering in big situations. It's a match made in heaven, and both parties want to keep it that way.
The Red Sox are reportedly talking about a huge extension with the 29 year-old second basemen, with sources saying the deal is worth around $100 million over five or six years. That kind of deal would make him the highest-paid second baseman in MLB.
It's the kind of deal that could allow Pedroia to become one of the few professional athletes to remain with one team for his entire career.
