In response to ADG's comment:
LCS 1 for 12 , 0 Runs, 0 RBIs, 1 BB, 6 K's
Division Series 2 for 15, 1 Run, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 2 K's
Total 3 for 27, 1 Run, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 8 K's
He is awful at the plate.
They have to change something because outside of the Ortiz grand slam, the Sox have 4 runs in the other 31 innings, and the Tigers have Sanchez, Scherzer and Verlander coming up.
Except for the fact that Drew is better than MB offensively, and defensively, and on the basepaths, and the fact that MB has not hit since 9/10, and the fact that MB has a .686 v righties, and Drew has an .876 v righties, you'd be absolutely right.
However, since Drew is better in almost every conceivable way, then you're wrong. If MB was hitting, and Drew wasn't, I'd agree Drew should sit.
But you'll most likely have better fielding and hitting in there with Drew. If nothing else, he can still field.
