"I just leave my agent and the Red Sox to deal with that," Pedroia said. The Red Sox are making progress in their efforts to sign Dustin Pedroia to a contract extension, according to multiple reports on Friday. Pedroia, the 2007 AL MVP, still has a year left at $10 million on his current deal. "My job is to come in here, play baseball and try to help the Red Sox win games. Pedroia, 29, is batting .316 and is in the top five with a .396 on-base percentage. The report states the sides are working out an extension that calls for an annual salary at roughly $20 million with a length of five or six years. At 29, the second baseman still seems to be coming into his own, as he entered play against the Yankees on Friday with a .396 on-base percentage, the highest of his career.
