Dustin Pedroia hasn't had the type of year many expect from the Red Sox veteran.

On Sports Tonight, Lou Merloni discussed what's going on with the second baseman? 

"I think he might have a little something going on," said Merloni. "He's not the same hitter he's been in his career, there's no question."

Although he may be having what many people consider a down year, Merloni said Pedroia is still earning his paycheck.  

"If he goes out there, hits .280 and wins a gold glove and hits even eight home runs in the two hole, that ends up being a $13 million player with all the stuff that he brings."
