Redsox Pedroia agrees to seven-year extension

Quote:
In a matter of days, the Red Sox will formally announce that they've reached a seven-year, $100 million contract with Dustin Pedroia.

Although the financial security is nice, Pedroia made it clear that his motivation in signing is to make sure he never plays a Major League game for any team other than the Red Sox.

"It's not official or anything, but this is my home." Pedroia said. "I love being here, I love my teammates, love this city. If it becomes that, I'll be pretty excited.

"That's really important. The Red Sox drafted me. A lot of teams passed on me because of my size and stuff like that. It's pretty important. That's why I want to make sure I work as hard as I can to make sure that they made the right choice in drafting me and me being here my whole career."

Pedroia still has a physical to pass, and there are some I's to dot and T's to cross before the deal is official.

That being said, Pedroia admitted how exciting the likelihood is that he will be with the Red Sox through at least 2021.

Pedroia, 29, is in the fourth year of a six-year deal that included an $11 million team option for '15. Instead of an option year, that will now mark the starting point of his new deal, which was first reported by WEEI.com and subsequently confirmed by MLB.com.
