Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is an American League finalist for the 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Award recognizing the top defensive performances at each position in the two leagues, as voted by league managers and coaches.

Cromartie then head-butted Bush, earning a flag for unnecessary roughness.
"I ain't lose my composure," insisted Cromartie, who dislocated his pinkie on the play....
