Ozzie Guillen Jokes He Saw Dustin Pedroia in Cirque du Soleil, But Praises Second Baseman’s Game

It's clear that Ozzie Guillen certainly respects the type of player that Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is. What is just as clear, though, is that he also loves to give Pedroia a hard time.

That's probably why in the span of just a few minutes, Guillen joked that he saw Pedroia in Cirque du Soleil, threatened to walk Pedroia just to end his hitting streak and called Pedroia "little midget" while talking with NESN's Heidi Watney.

However, Guillen praised Pedroia for the way he played the game, saying that not only was he a fun player to watch, but also said that Pedroia's "heart is bigger than his body."
