Pedroia: Muscle Strain "Won't Be An Issue"

Adam Kilgore, Globe:
Pedroia will miss only a few days with a strain in his left abdominal muscle ... It is a far less serious injury than the initially feared oblique strain, which could have sidelined Pedroia for 6-8 weeks.
Pedroia:
When you have a physique like this, when you're shredded and everything, something might happen.

The first is of course FY's head atop Eddie Gaedel's body. Gaedel was a midget instead of a dwarf, so the proportions are different.

Sorry, there's no such thing as midget vs dwarf. Midget is just an expression made up by P T Barnum. "Little People" - self-described - all have dwarfism. Some little people are more conventionally proportioned than others. And of course FY is a giant among his kind!

I gotta start collecting Pedroia quotes. I'll start with this one and the recent one about coming out of games and Jeter. I need help with ones from 2007 and 2008.

Thank you. I was about to post how Pedroia never fails to give me a hard belly laugh.

Bring your glasses for the laser show?

Allan posted that story on JoS when it first ran. Very enjoyable.

Very enjoyable.

Yes, it was. Especially for its total eschewal of the word "scrappy."

Yes! I wish ESPN Magazine did more stories I wanted to read, b/c the writing is really a cut above.

Has anyone seen the video game commercial with Dustin Pedroia? It's pretty funny.
