Next Captain Has Right Stuff

We all know about Dustin Pedroia's attitude. Gritty. Tenacious. Nasty. That's why we love him. And the next captain did nothing to diminish his stature (honestly, no pun was intended here) with The Nation by his actions in Philly. Word is that he refused an autograph request from young Philly starter Vance Worley. How refreshing is that?

Of course, after Worley beat the Sox, Pedey was effusive in his praise of the youngster (as he should have been), but you've gotta love the line of demarcation that Pedroia lays down. Essentially, he's telling the guys in the other laundry: 'Fraternize this, pal.'
