Saw this in the Herald today: http://bostonherald....oias_leadership It's from the Hot Stove, Cool Music discussion the other night, and I thought it was interesting for a couple of reasons. First, I love Pedroia's competitive attitude, regard for the game, and am so glad he's a member of the Red Sox. Secondly, it gives some insight to leadership on the team and what the front office values.

Yeah, I rolled my eyes at that as well....the anecdotes from Farrell and Hazen were what I was focused on.

I love Pedey, but I don't even want to know what trades he thinks Ben should make. :blink:

What's wrong with this? Isn't he known to be the only star on the 2011 team that didn't behave like a six year-old?

So if Jeter is "Captain Intangibles", what is Pedroia?

"Lieutenant Intangiibles"?

"Corporal Intangibles"?

I think since he's such a little guy, "Corporal Intangibles" fits best.

Yeah, I knew that one was coming. :)

I think he needs to get a little bit closer to 3000 hits before he gets promoted over Jeter.


edit: But you know, we do have equal opportunity in the military, and certainly do appreciate diviersity with regard to promotion boards. So if there is a quota for little people, I can see a good argument.

Honestly, nothing really. To me it just sounded awkwardly written, or perhaps superficial. I'd have rather had a longer sentence or two that highlights his intangibles, though maybe there wasn't enough space for that (or perhaps it's not legal.) :D As for a nickname, I like the reference to the Gunnery Sergeant.
