Good News: Pedroia Hitting Streak Over

This is no time for one of the best hitters on the Sox to be distracted. If the streak had reached 35 games, the Muddy Chicken would have had to explain to national press, over and over, that he is not distracted and is just playing day-by-day.

It was great fun while it lasted, but (just like the Patriots would have been better off losing a game during their undefeated season) this is good news in disguise.
