Dustin Pedroia Ready for Season After Abrupt Ending to 2009 Campaign Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia joined NESN announcer Don Orsillo on SportsDesk to discuss the upcoming season.

First, reflection was in order after the Red Sox’ quick ALDS loss to the Angels left a bitter taste in many players’ mouths.

“It was tough,” Pedroia admitted. “We won 95 games and we were all amped up for the playoffs and it ended real fast.”

Pedroia is excited about his new teammates, too, noting that while everyone talks about defense, “the guys we got also swing bats well too.”
