Dramatic improvement

Posted by Eric Wilbur, Boston.com Staff March 2, 2009 09:10 AM

Rookie of the Year and an MVP award in just two years in the big leagues. But you could argue that the most dramatic improvement Dustin Pedroia has made since his 2007 debut with the Red Sox is with his acting chops. Here he is as the cover boy for Playstationís MLB: The Show.

Ah, our boy has come a long way. But fear not, he's not forgetting his roots, already having filmed a new batch of ads for Sullivan Tire, to debut some time this season. So, we still have the potential for another classic.

  1. It is generally the director, not the actor who is the problem. I have seen enough Sullivan Tire commercials to realize they do not bring in Scorsese for those shoots. They are incredibly funny, though. It amazes me how someone could be directing that commercial with Pedroia, and then call a wrap. High fiving and such because they nailed it.

  1. "Incredibly funny" ?!?! How about incredibly irritating !! The bad acting aside, seeing that old man Sullivan with his long white old man hair blowing about ... grinding voice ... un"cool"ly untucked shirt . I cringe everytime they're on. Just awful.
