    Sorry for being such a gatecrasher, Fran, you didn´t asked me but here goes my two cents worth anyway.

    I learned that "pedazo" can be both derogative (most used this way), but it can

be as a praising word "pedazo de cielo"/"pedazo de mi corazón".

    I think it could even be used to mean that the guy is short in height, depends on context, hard to say without knowing the day-to-day relationship of the guys. For me it could be a bullying or a nice way of speaking...

    Now, I´ll let Dale come and do the fine-tunning.    :-)

      DEROGATORY AND OFFENSIVE.

   HERE, IT´S A PRAISING OF THE SOCCER PLAYER.

   "Pedazo" being an intensifier word meaning "quite a soccer player".
