Dustin Pedroia threw teammate Matt Barnes under the bus: Danny Picard

I get it. Dustin Pedroia is going to receive the benefit of the doubt in Boston.   He's an All-Star second baseman, a career .300 hitter, a Gold Glove defender, a dirt dog in every sense of the phrase, and a two-time World Series champion. If you're a Red Sox fan and you root against...
