Dustin Pedroia may be sticking around with the Red Sox for a while. Gordon Edes Tweets that the Red Sox made a formal extension offer to Pedroia over the All-Star break. The contract could potentially be worth $100 million or more and would make Pedroia the highest paid second baseman in the league. "Both sides are motivated to strike a deal," writes Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan. Pedroia, a four-time All-Star, is hitting .316 this season and has a career-high .396 on-base percentage. He signed a six-year deal worth $40.5 million with the Red Sox in 2008, as the two sides were able to avoid arbitration for three seasons and free agency for two.
