I like what you're doing here, nvalvo! I'm not 100% convinced that Pedey would agree, though. I hope Pedroia never becomes an ego issue the way Jeter did at the end of his career!I would put Pedroia ninth to start, to work him in. He's coming back from knee surgery, so I'm not sure maximizing his PA should be the focus from the get go.
Reevaluate as appropriate, but putting Pedroia's .366 career OBP in front of a guy who's been hitting for considerable power makes some sense anyways.
