Maybe Dustin Pedroia wears his cap too tight. Or maybe he was just joking around, which seems likely.
But if he was serious when he saw Reggie Jackson and ran his mouth about how Barry Bonds and Pedroia, not Jackson, are the two best players ever to come out of Arizona State ...
Well. I go back to my original hypothesis: Pedroia's wearing his cap too tight.
I mean, come on, now, he's Dustin Pedroia, and Reggie Jackson is ... well, Reggie Jackson. On top of it being utterly classless of Pedroia to diss Jackson to his face, it makes him look like a stone fool.
Seriously, dude. You're better than Reggie Jackson?
Yes, and pigs fly, do barrel rolls and land regularly at Logan Airport, too.
In other words: Come back when you've won four World Series, hit three home runs in a World Series game and 563 lifetime, and driven in 1,702 runs lifetime. Then we'll talk.
