    The fact nobody has signed this dude to what "he wants" shows how un-valuable he is. We would have won with Iggy just as easily. over rated 



    You have no clue what youre talking about in terms of what he wants being the reason he isnt signed yet.  Did you ever think that the team that signs him would lose a first round pick and maybe thats the biggest reason for not being signed??  Your hatred for him is pretty comical and shows you didnt watch much of the season this year otherwise you would have seen a lot of clucth hits and really good defense.

    Yes, BORA$$  & DREW make quite a pair.....  Its all $$$$$$  The fact that DREW is making the Sox wait, is like Macarthur making Truman wait @ Wake Island !!   I don't want this attitude on my team !!!





    So because he hasn't signed by the date you think he should, he has a bad attitude? Does this apply to all free agents still un-signed?

    You started the thread off saying you didn't want him, but now he's a jerk for "making the Sox wait"?

    sorry but Iggy's errors during the ALCS were an imperative part of us winning the series...



    We wouldn't have won unless Iggy was on the Tigers.    Seriously...who cares about Iggy? regardless I am fine with Bogarts and Middlebrooks.  Drew can move on.

    In response to moonslav59's comment:

    Yes but that was after the regular season in which Iggy hit infield singles for two month then nothing. Drew vs Iggy could have put the Red Sox closer to Tampa Bay.

    I wouldn't say .259 with the Tigers was "nothing", and I do remember most posters here saying they'd be happy with .260 from Iggy due to his superior range and defense at SS.

    Would you, right now, trade Peavy for Iggy?



    No.

    But this board overvalues Iggy so much it is laughable.

    All things considered, I'd probably let Drew walk and take the pick, but it continually amazes me just how many posters are convinced that the guy is a bum for some reason. Don't tell me it's because of his hitting in the playoffs...there is a certain group that had it out for him all season long.

    Forget his defense...offensively he had one of the most productive seasons by any SS in MLB outside of the Tulo/Han-Ram class. To say you wouldn't take him for a mere $5 million (or, as one unnamed poster did during the regular season, that no MLB GM would be stupid enough to give him a starting job in 2014) is sheer idiocy. If he could be had for $5 million I'd not only take that deal and run with it but would propose a cheap long-term contract for Xander while Boras is still under the influence of whatever he's been smoking.

    It actually looks like alot of people do not want Drew back because they think if he isn't, Iglesias will somehow be the starting shortstop again.  Otherwise, there really was no reason to ever mention Iglesias in this thread.

     

    People, Iglesais is gone. You need to move on.  He's off dating someone else now, and is not waiting for you to call.

       Time to move on from this BORA$$ connection !!!!    What say you, all you smart baseball people ??????



    Bill, 

    You and Ench couldn't be more wrong on this one. Granted Drew wasn't great on offense but he was still in the top five of short stop and played solid if not great defense during the season and over the top defense in the post season. As to why he's not signed yet, BorASS is trying to get top dollar and clubs will not pay out what BorASS is going for. In retrospect we did over pay Drew last year but in this age of way over inflated salaries in MLB that's going to happen. I for one hope we resign Drew for 2-3 years.

    I hear what you are saying ......  I just can't stand the idea that the Sox would sign a 260+- hitter that gets in the way of the home grown players......  Bogaerts by all accounts can play the position and has displayed that he can hit with "pop" in the bat from the all important right side in Fenway Paaaak ...... I see Drew as a "stop gap" for last year that played well & was paid very,very,very well at 10MIL .....  Now is the time to move on.....  There is still the question of Middlebrooks and what Ben wants to do with some of the Veteran pitchers........ OBTW,  Again, there is not much chatter coming from other teams for DREW  !!!

    Bill, 

    You're missing the point. Signing Drew is not getting in the way of Boggy starting at shortstop. And who cares if Drew is a homegrown talent or not. That has little to nothing to do with the issue. No one doubts that Boggy can field the position, probably hit well with more pop than Drew, yet you touch on it yet miss the point. If Middy can't hit well enough he goes to the bench and Boggy goes back to third. Untill Middlebrooks proves he can hit major league pitching well enough Bogaert's permanant position will be up in the air.

    As far as folks climbing down your back like myself, when you post inane remarks that are meaningless like you don't want that attitude on your team. That my friend, no insult intended, is a dumb comment. There was nothing wrong with Drew's attitude. He comes to play every day and is a team player. You need to think before you write foolish comments.

    Right, and if Middy stinks it up at the plate like he did last year, you'll be one of the first ones screaming to get him out of there.

    Bill, 

    You still evade the real issue. What happens if Middlebrooks cannot hit major league pitching. Are you then going to pull a rabbit out of your hat in a shortstop somehow or better a third baseman. 

    Hetch

    Hetch,     Here goes .......  Middy can hit, he cn hit with power, he has shown that he can hit.....  I think that at times with all the expectations & chatter around him he has shown a CONFIDENCE problem .......  That being said, I will take his bat over drews 90% of the time......... Ben his holding on to this "card" for a bit.....  Who knows, he could end up in a "package" for a slugger or he could end up running off with Jenny, JENNY DELL and joining Forrest,FORREST GUMP on the shrimp boats !!!!  Merry Christmas Hetch, I do enjoy the back & forth !!!

    Bill, 

    You were doing okay with me until you started up with the Jenny thing again. You let it go long ago. Please let it go again. 

    Merry Christmas to you,

    Teams value draft picks, so I'm sure that is playing into some teams deciding not to offer Drew a contract or to lessen their offer by the value of the draft choice.

    Had Drew not received the qualifying offer, I think he'd have many offers.

    If the Yankees had the stones to move Jeter to 2B, Drew would be playing for them next year.

    Moon, 

    Somehow I forgot about that draft pick. It is almost assured that that is the reason Drew hasn't been signed by now. As for Bill he's been hitting the bubbly well before New Years. 

    Have a great and Merry Christmas !!

    Hetch
