Actually - you didn't post anything that validated your claim that Pedroia has a bad attitude or a big mouth, except when chatting it up with teammates.

This is why I hate Pedroia:

Because everyone else would argue to the ump on the opponent's behalf.

I consider myself a fairly moral person but I would certainly never try to change an umpire's mind after he just gave my team a gift call. Aside from the fact that an umpire shouldn't really be changing his mind about close plays on the bases, and the fact that I'm making it more difficult for my team to win, I'm pretty sure my teammates would want to kill me. Or at least question my sanity.

That would be an unreasonable expectation, and I obviously wouldn't ask him to do that.

But look at him and his damn smirk.

I hate Boston.

Give the guy a break. There might be reasons to hate him but this isn't it. I feel like you're really reaching here. The guy's smiling. Is that so bad?

You're joking? Me give a Red Sox player a break?

Irrational hate doesn't have rules.

This is why the Pedroia/Eckstein comparisons have to stop.






Eckstein would have been honest with the ump right there.
