FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Dustin Pedroia had a ready quip when asked about the changes Major League Baseball is implementing in terms of pace of play.
"My kids go to bed at 8, so I’m not in a rush," the Red Sox second baseman said. "I don’t make the rules, I don’t break them. So that’s where I’m at."
"Honestly, that’s a good question," he said. "That’s going to be a tough thing for those guys to enforce. Those guys are always telling us to try to keep things going. I don’t think [hitters] are intentionally trying to slow things down, but now the [umpires] obviously will have more responsibility, and gives them more power in the game."
