It's not about the money penalty.  They want to rebuild their farm which they can't with all these luxury tax penalties.  They are losing draft picks left and right and not just the ability to grow their own but also use them in crucial trades down the line.  You just can't go the FA route exclusively.

And I don't think Pedroia and his family were starving to death with what he was paid earlier.  Hell Yaz used to just take one year contracts and refused to have an agent.  Met with Yawkey each year and quickly agreed on a deal.  He never starved to death and never complained about being underpaid in the "bad old days" of player salaries.  There is more to life than greed.

yaz, as in carl yastrzemski, the guy who hasn't played since 1983? how is this relevant to pedroia?

It shows another era when character still counted more than greed in baseball.
