Pedroia: 'Hey, we're winning games'
By: DJ Bean

Appearing on The Big Show on Wednesday with Lou Merloni and Rob Bradford, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia discussed the foot injury he suffered in San Francisco last Friday and how the team has responded to his trip to the DL.

 

"I've never missed a significant amount of time before, so it's kind of tough, but I'm going to get back in there as soon as possible," Pedroia said. 

 

The prognosis for Pedroia was that he would miss six weeks with the injury, but the 2008 AL MVP has confidence in him teammates as he tries to speed the process along. 

 

"They said two weeks on crutches, then in three weeks there going to take another CT scan to see how my bone's healing and then we'll go from there," Pedroia said. "We'll see where we're at. I'm anxious to get back, but the guys that are filling in right now are doing a great job for us. As long as we keep winning ball...

Tito on D&H: Beltre is 'hitting everything'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday and talked about the play of Adrian Beltre, who is ranked among the American League top 10 in batting average, slugging and OPS. 

 

"He's had some pretty big years now," said Francona. "He's had some injuries, he's had some amazing years. We're seeing him at his best, and he's held it for a long time. He's hitting everything -- he hit a ball down the left-field line last night [Tuesday] that had to be a foot outside [the strike zone]. With two strikes he shortens up a little bit, he squares up the ball to all fields, it's obvious he feels great about himself. He's played every day, I think his biggest fear is that we are going to walk up to him and tell him he has the day off. We just stay away from him."

 

Francona was asked about Victor Martinez and if there was a chance that he could have avoided a DL...

Clemens to pitch to son in HR derby

Roger Clemens is expected to pitch to his son, Koby, on Wednesday in the Home Run Derby before the Texas League All-Star Game in Midland. 

 

Clemens last pitched in the major leagues for the Yankees in 2007. The seven-time Cy Young award winner has been the center of a steroid controversy and is currently being investigated by a federal grand jury for perjury pertaining to his testimony during a February 2008 congressional hearing. 

 

Koby Clemens, a first baseman for the Houston Astros' Double-A club in Corpus Christi, is second in the Texas League with 16 HR and 53 RBI.
