Dustin Pedroia likes the decision:
John's awesome. He's always that guy you can go to and talk (to about) any kind of problems. He's there for you. He wants you to be the best you can be as a player, and if you have something going on off the field you can always go to him.Hanley Ramirez's nickname for Pedroia? Smurf.

Today is also the day for pitchers and catchers to report to camp, but most of the Red Sox team is already in Fort Myers.
