I have a hard time believing Dustin Pedroia, one of the most disciplined middle infielders in recent memory, won't finish 2007 with an OBP in the top ten for all major league second-basemen. With no real leadoff hitter on the Red Sox roster and with all the top of the order ABs the now-departed Loretta saw in 2006, I don't see it too farfetched to see Pedroia scoring 85+ times if given the opportunity in front of Drew, Manny, and Ortiz.
Pedroia's MLB stat-line for 2006 is misleading. His BABIP was very low...if he had just a .300 BABIP last year, he would have had an average of .292 and an OBP of .344.
To put it simply, I think he's worth something in '07.
