Dustin Pedroia: Long-term extension with Red Sox ‘would be great’
|07.19.13 at 10:52 pm ET|
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said that he was leaving any talks about a long-term contract extension between his agent and the team that drafted him in 2004. Still, while the second baseman said that he had no hard information to offer about the state of negotiations on a possible extension, he made clear that such an outcome would be welcome.
“That’s great to think about. It’s hard to happen,” Pedroia said of staying in Boston for the long haul. “This is all I know. These guys are my family. Everybody. If it got to that point, it would be great.”
Still, he had no details to offer about a potential long-term deal. Pedroia, who went 1-for-4 and is hitting .316 with a .394 OBP this year, said that he did not want to get distracted from his job during contract talks.
“I just leave my agent and the Red Sox to deal with that. My job is to come in here, play baseball and try to help the Red Sox win games. I don’t have anything for you right now,” said Pedroia. “I’m just focused, they’ll tell me when something, I’m just focused on trying to help us win baseball games. That’s what I’m trying to do.”
