Pedroia might need knee surgery

Dustin PedroiaDustin Pedroia will return to Boston on Thursday to have his right knee examined and could be facing surgery, the Boston Globe reports.

Pedroia was injured on May 16 against the Orioles. Pedroia has played in the 19 games since he fell on his knee fielding a ball. He was 1 for 3 in the Red Sox's victory over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Pedroia told the Globe he will have a procedure tomorrow -- "a needle with a camera on it," he described the procedure -- at Massachusetts General Hospital to determine the extent of the damage and then could have another surgery immediately. He said it would keep him out at least a month.

However, the Boston Herald quotes an unnamed Red Sox official as saying the team doesn't expect Pedroia to need surgery.

"Pedey is overly dramatic," the Herald quotes an anonymous source. "At this point, I honestly think we're just being cautious." 

Pedroia's hitting just .246/.357/.338 this season and said it's because of his knee and his surgically repaired left foot.

"It's hard to hit when something is wrong with your legs," Pedroia said. "I've been trying."

For the Boston & LA haters, if you were lucky enough to have Pedroia on your team, you'd be jumping for joy.Unfortunately I don't the the San Diego Padres can afford him.

As a Red Sox fan, I'm afraid we are about to get some bad news.Pedroia's style of play is beggining to make him injury prone.I wouldn't be surprised if he were hurt in more places that he's told us about.Dustin's never hit in the .240's in June. Bottom line, I think he's going under the knife & his season could be over.If he doesn't start using his head, he could have a short career.If he smartens up he could ,one day,have a shot at the HOF.
Stay tuned.

It's easy to dislike Pedroia.  Constant on field whining, cursing explicitly on camera all the time in good in bad situations, and the completely transparent display he put on by fielding grounders from his knees the day after he got the boot put on.  Completely pandered to the whole "scrappy mcgritty" garbage RSN eats up, while simultaneously taking a shot at Ellsbury for not playing through his cracked ribs.

HATE BOSTON AND LA

That guy has to be the biggest moron ever.  Each and every point he makes is wrong...outside Papi maybe taking steroids at one point.  But the rest of them....dumb as ever.

Hey loser...speak intelligently or don't speak at all.

As a Red Sox fan, I commend  you for your defense of him, however I have to question your reasoning for not liking him?  Pedroia is to the Sox what Derek Jeter is to the Yankees.  I'm not comparing their careers by any means but he does little things that make him great that don't always show up on the box score.  He's a solid defender, hits for power considering his size, and he shows up to play every day.  He's a team leader.  Furthermore, he's never been one to bad mouth opponents or to be in the media for negative happenings.  Any ill feelings you might have towards Dustin can ONLY BE frustration that he is not your teams 2nd baseman.  On the field he is a warrior and a decent guy, off the field he at least stays outta trouble....I've never met him in person so the only other thing I could think of is that he rubbed you the wrong way...that said, I've heard that about just about EVERY baseball player.  That's my only out I give you on not liking him
