Oompa Loompa's World Wide Are Rejoicing.

Rookie of the Year.

World Series Championship.

2007 AL MVP.

6 year, $40.5 million dollar contract extension after all of 2 years in the Show.

Dustin Pedroia continues his meteoric rise as role model and hero of 5'6" prematurely bald guys everywhere.

Knowing the Red Sox have this guy locked up essentially for the next 7 years has me positively giddy. I've got the feeling whenever Tek leaves the team that Captain moniker already has a jersey to land on.

As a fellow member of the vertically challenged and the Dad of someone who most likely will make Gary Coleman look positively Amazonian, Pedie's success takes on a special meaning.

After years of MVP's the likes of Bonds, Sosa, Caminetti, Vaughan, and Slappy, to see Pedie win this prestigious award gives hope to every normal guy who happens to be a fan of baseball.

The fact he got such a huge contract only makes me smile even more.

Finally, the normal guy gets his due.

What makes me smile more than anything? Somewhere Hank Steinbrenner is lambasting some poor scout who told him there was no WAY Pedie would be better than Robinson Cano.

Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it, Hank.

it's Cano..not Canoe..Swiss Family Robinson built a canoe. Cano plays baseball ;)

WooooooooooooT. Can ya believe it?? Pedie just gets better and better.

Ted D said...

Thanks, Tex. I'll fix it; shows what I get for doing this crap at 10 at night.

Tex said...

no you are just excited about the munchkin getting just desserts

Ted D said...

That too. I still can't believe the year he had; good to see him cash in.

I think the lolipop kids are throwin a kegger in his honor.

You in ted?

Ted D said...

You have to ask, Rich?

Rich in the garage said...

Now if I could just find that color changing horse we'd be all set to head out.

Ted D said...

You lost the horse?

What is wrong with you, man?

Brenken said...

I look up to Dustin Pedroia. I really do. He's much taller than I am.

My password is agingstr. I wouldn't call myself a star but I'm aging quickly.

Ted D said...

Brenken, we'll all have to meet one day and take a "SG Short People" picture.
