Pedroia wins 1st Golden Glove

Dustin Pedroia followed up his Rookie of the Year 2007 Award by winning his 1st Golden Glove as a 2nd Baseman. He is also a strong candidate for AL MVP Honors. Of course he would trade them all for a 2nd World Series ring but still it's a great accomplisment for Lil' Pedro!

Jacoby who was the favorite at the beginning of the year, based on his post-season success last year to be the AL Rookie of the Year, ended up 3rd behind Evan Longoria of the Rays and something or other Ramirez, 2nd baseman for the Chicago White Sox. Ellsbury stoloe 50 bases but slumped at the plate and was benched for the final 3 games of the ALCS.
