The Baseball Essential website has ranked Red Sox second-baseman Dustin Pedroia as the seventh-best MLB player at his position. Pedroia had a huge bounce-back (and injury-free) 2016 and has catapulted back into the "best second-baseman" conversation. Ranked before The Muddy Chicken are: Jose Altuve, Robinson Cano, Brian Dozier, Daniel Murphy, Ian Kinsler and DJ LaMahieu. Said the website of the 33-year-old Laser Show,"Pedroia proved he is still among the best at his position and likely will continue to be as he assumes the role of grizzled veteran on a young Red Sox team". Clearly, he will be key to keeping a Papi-Free offense clicking.
