I really liked Cody. I'll be sorry to see him go. I wonder what it takes to play the outfield here. I bet it's harder than most people think. I think that's why Drew was injured so much. He was all over right field diving all over the place. Sweeney's injuries also made you think as well Ellsbury diving and banging himself all over the field. Is everyone missing something? Were there really players in the past that could throw themselves all over, make every play and just get up and dust themselves off every time?
I don't know which games you were watching but if you can come up with some video showing JD Drew laying out for a fly ball, I'd be shocked!
I'm sure the only kind of diving he did was of the muff variety.
I saw Drew make many sliding catching into the corner. I don't know what game you were watching. And I also saw him get up and gun runners down at third base. Which, to me, is the most awesome move in baseball.
Edit: Besides an incredibly hot slide into second base, of course.
