You're not trying to force him to stay. Zaun said let him go anyways. That's not forcing him to stay. What your doing is telling Boston you're not just going to do whatever you want. It's making a statement to the players that we are an organization of strength. You may not be pushed around, that may be the wrong words, but it's all about showing a position of strength. That's the position you make. It's not necessarily about getting Pedroia.
