Dustin Pedroia arrives at spring training, threatens Dan Shaughnessy

Dustin Pedroia has arrived at spring training, and he is feisty.

Dustin Pedroia is in Fort Myers, which means spring training just became a whole lot more quotable. The Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy was trying to tell Pedroia about his unfortunate winter, and Pedey responded in a jokingly threatening manner. (He was joking, right?)

Pedroia already knows some of his new teammates, like Hanley Ramirez, who had a nickname saved up for the diminutive keystoner:

When asked about more serious business -- the new pace of play rules MLB and the MLBPA announced on Friday -- Pedroia had a practical response.

And hey, this only sort of has to do with Pedroia since he's in the photo, but look whose beard has already grown back despite that cringe-worthy facial surgery!

It's good to have you back, Mike Napoli. You and that glorious beard. And Pedroia's jokes. Man I missed baseball.
