The Muddy Chicken Is 'Quietly' Having A Monster July

Don't look now, but your 'aging' second-baseman is having a great month of July. Through the first 17 days of the month, Dustin Pedroia is leading the ball-club in: hits (21), doubles (tied, 3), RBIs (15), on-base percentage (.431), slugging percentage (.517) and OPS (.948). On top of all that, he made one of the most spectacular defensive plays of his career in July—the wacky, brick-wall carom, Matrix-twisting, Fourth Of July eve beauty in Texas. At this pace, The Laser Show is odds-on favorite to be the FenwayNation July Player O' The Month.
