Red Sox infielder Dustin Pedroia is now Boston’s answer to Don Quixote

The baseball season is on hold with spring training slowly becoming summer training as the world has stopped spinning. For one baseball player on a quest, this may have surprising dividends for the Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia. I have lost count and possibly Pedroia has of the surgeries and the ill-fated comebacks.

Was Cervantes Don Quixote heroic or mad – just plain bonkers. Both could apply to Pedroia in his quest to return to the field. Many a player would have simply gone through the process required by the Collective Bargaining Agreement and drifted into retirement.
