Dustin Pedroia may be on an indefinite break from baseball, but the relationship between him and Red Sox manager Alex Cora still hasn’t faded one bit.
After Boston’s 17-inning marathon against the Minnesota Twins, Cora said Pedroia sent him a pretty comical message.
“He text(s) me after the extra-inning game in Minnesota just to make fun of me,? Cora told reporters Sunday, per MassLive.com’s Christopher Smith. “… He was like, ‘What did you have? Two Red Bulls and a coffee?’ I was like, ‘No, it just happens.’ ”
Cora and Pedroia have a lengthy history, including their time together on Boston’s 2007 World Series championship team. And it looks like that friendship has only gotten stronger as time progresses.
