Nothing to see here...Move along, people

One day after the celebrations and libations that followed their entry into the postseason, a familiar sight is playing out at Fenway Park. It's a couple minutes before 3 p.m., and Dustin Pedroia is the lone player on the field, taking batting practice thrown by first-base coach Luis Alicea. Given that he has made a daily ritual of starting B.P. roughly an hour before his teammates, it seems somewhat misleading to call it "early" batting practice.
