Let's go Sasquatchin'

There are very few professional athletes that have a legitimate chance of retiring with one organization. Boston fans are all to familiar with saying goodbye to a beloved athlete they've watched grow up right before their very eyes. Paul Pierce spent 15 years with the Celtics only to leave the Garden for the Garden State (I still look at the Nets as New Jersey's team, sorry). 

So, when rumors circulated this week of a possible $100 million deal that would keep Dustin Pedroia in a Red Sox uniform for the foreseeable future, everyone (including your disturbingly sneaky Uncle Charlie) had an opinion on the situation. Get ready for those opinions to intensify.  

Now, Rob Bradford of is reporting that the Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia have agreed in principle to a seven year deal.

According to a baseball source, the Red Sox and second baseman have agreed to a seven-year, worth approximately $100 million extension that will begin following the final guaranteed year of his current deal. Pedroia is currently in the midst of six-year, $40.5 million deal that carries a team option for 2015.

We'll keep you posted, RedSoxLifers.
