In short, it would have been right in line with his career numbers - and he might have set a career high in ding dongs.
In 2011, Pedroia will play with a screw in his foot. He's been rehabbing like a mad man, reporting early to camp for 6AM strengthening workouts, but don't be surprised if Francona opts to rest Pedey more frequently that in years past. With Jed Lowrie healthy and playing well, Pedey probably won't start 150+ games this season... and I'm fine with that. I'd much rather have a healthy, strong Pedroia in October than see him limp through 160 games.
Unfortunately, I do think we'll see Pedey hit the DL once this season, so I'm precicting 600 ABs, max. That said, 600 ABs is more than enough for Dustin to put up his usual numbers. And I think we're gonna see a little more power from him this season too.
Rob's Prediction: 600 AB, .301 BA, .835 OPS, 45 2B, 19 HR, 75 RBI, 105 R
* Special Category: Stolen Bases - 17 SB
