Rivera picks Pedroia

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera says he would take Boston’s Dustin Pedroia over former teammate Robinson Cano as his top second baseman.

“There is no doubt that he is a Hall of Fame-caliber talent,” Rivera said about Cano in his new book. “It’s just a question of whether he finds the drive that you need to get there.”
