I love this line from Gammons: "WAR me no more on Dustin Pedroia, there’s no quantifying him, or many elements in the game."
Seriously. Just when I wondah if unabated man crush on Pedroia is sliding into the realm of creepy, Gammons will come along with something to make me realize that rathah than man crushing too much, I'm really not man crushing enough.
"[Pedroia] pushed and prodded his teammates to take that daily 30-45 minute infield drilling... and impacted almost every teammate with his intense refusal to give in to any concept of losing..."
When you read that, can you imagine the angst Pedroia must have felt every fucking day of the 2012 season?
I'm surprised the sun didn't explode.
