    He's a sight for sore eyes coming on the heels of Bushwhacker

    Deficit, debt and unemployment is all that needs to be said. This isn't about Bush, it's about Barry.

    Re: DREW DONE ON MONDAY WHEN CRAW IS READY?

    I too would like to see Reddick getting his shot in right. But Drew is going nowhere, for good reasons. Theo builds for the stretch & postseason. Drew is .279 lifetime in the regular season, but .333 postseason. He's .293 lifetime in September. As recently as 2009 he batted .329 in August and .338 in September. Even in his dismal 2010 he batted .271 in Sept. So let's eat his salary and get nothing in return? I say he has a few big hits left, and that's all we need from him.

    Anyone saying we should dump Jenks 3 injured months into a 2 year deal is not worth quoting stats to.

    Re: DREW DONE ON MONDAY WHEN CRAW IS READY?

    Drew is not a .333 hitter in the post season..Repeat, Drew is NOT a lifetime .333 hitter in the post season - this is simply not correct!!!!!

    Drew is a lifetime .260 hitter in the post season and in his last 10 post season games, he has batted UNDER .250 (ie he is trending down).  The last time he had a good post season was in 2008 but also, 2008 was probably his best year with the Sox.  Given there is some correlation between regular season and post season performance and given that Drew is having his worst season of his entire career, I think that it would be a big mistake to keep him around and think that he's gonna light it up in the post season; not to mention that we have to reach the post season first.........

    PS - Drew's OPS (the board's favorite stat) is 877 in the regular season and 741 in the post season.  Based on this stat, Drew is actually much much worse in the post season.

    Sorry but that isn't happening. They aren't DFAing 20 million dollars for 1 position in 1 week. In terms of baseball, that is what should happen, but what will likely happen is either Navarro will be optioned, or Drew will come down with a phantom injury and go on the DL to clear his head and see if Reddick can hold down the everyday job.

    Andrewmitch,

    My bad. Was at Baseball Reference and blurry eyes quoted his OBP (very next column) instead. He is .261. I believe the rest of the stats I quoted are correct. Not expecting him to "light it up", but he has had more clutch late season and postseason hits than any of the alternatives. We're not talking about resigning him here. We're talking about whether to throw him away.

    no problem......big difference b/t 333 and 260

    the problem is that the Theo won't release him because it will make his statements about "a tick over 14 mil" look really bad

    [QUOTE]like theo making a baseball move on cam and cutting him. time to do the same with drew and give right to reddick and lets see what he has heading into the trade deadline and next offseason. let reddick play everyday with navarro giving him a blow every so often. i will keep mac around a bit longer for he will be an emergency guy and he plays great defense. he'S A nice guy to hold on to until you can get a better option. perhaps the japanese guy in the minors can come up and platoon with reddick. still, you never know. long as mac hits over .100, you keep him around. doesnt hurt to have one vet around in case craw or ells go down at some point. overall, navarro/red is a better combo than drew/cam/mac...

    Drew will never disappear and it's all MY FAULT. I was so evil in my former lives that the Gods are making me pay for it now by submitting me to the worst torture imaginable.
    On a brighter side, watching Drew play is mildly better than listening to Yoko Ono sing, so all in all, I could have had it worse.

    you guys with your obama stuff must watch fox "news" propaganda.
    if you use your own brain and pay attention you will know that obama has much more effectively accomplished the RIGHT wing agenda, just like clinton did, just like tony blair did in uk, and ditto helmet cole in germany. it was the reason obama was selected by the builderberg group, the billionaires who run this country and the world, who meet every 4 years and decide who will be president.

    Posted by brdbreu[/QUOTE]couldnt agree more. on ALL social issues bama is pretty much a soft left leaning LIBERTARIAN. like his "poll-evolving" view on homosexuality and so forth. on military and dilomacy, he's coopted the reps. where the line is however is with ECONOMIC POLICY. he voted for him but he clearly is more of a MARXIST than a capitalist, and that may be end up being his doom. clinton never would have gone as far economically as bama did. 

    oh yep back to drew... that was the capitalistic system working best for the player.

    Drew  is a case of asking for more years in a contract and going one year too long.

    He almost looks sad,,, not hitting,  black eye,  aches and pains... He has  3 months left in his career and  I think he knows it's time to head home to South Georgia --      and live like a king on his baseball millions.

    Posted by andrewmitch[/QUOTE]

    It's been almost 5 years since the Sox signed that deal, and with 3 months left, there is no fear of "looking bad."

    There are two reasons the Sox won't DFA Drew when Crawford coems back.  1) McDonald has been worse and is likely to clear waivers and 2) Navarro still has options.

    The Sox are unlikely to start making too many irreverisble moves over the next month or two, and the forcing themselves to rely on younger, inexperienced players and hoping injuries don't accrue.

    After all, what do you do if you release Drew and Reddick goes 1 for his next 30?   Start McDonald?  Call up another minor leaguer and hop for the best?

    Drew will be in Boston.  And someone else headed to Pawtucket...

    The top tax rate going from 39% to 36% the lowest top rate in the history of income

    Needless to say, there was no 16th amendment and zero income tax before the socialist policies were implemented.

    I recommend you donate all of your income and private property to the National Trust, and join Obama's shovel ready peace corpse.

    My opinion - as far as Crawford goes basically he's been a BUST so what makes him any different then Drew...?

    Drew will stay for his defense. His bat is dead -as everyone knows, but late in the game with the score tied or one run lead you need a guy like Drew in there for defensive purposes he is still a very good right fielder.

    Posted by xfiles45[/QUOTE]look, the best defensive playerby far  in the organization is the asian guy chieng at pawtucket. he's been hitting a storm and is ready for a call up. he's also a lefty. if drew was a righty he would have more value. its time to give reddick a shot, cant do that with drew around. if reddick fails or gets hurt, u bring up a chieng or go with navarro or drew sutton. give me a break already. rightfield defense is so overrated esp when on the road.

    DMc has to go to relieve Tito of his man crush--seriously(I do realize you have a Lefty coming in but) pinchhitting DMc for Reddick, a .100 hitter for a .422 just about took the cake Sunday I don't care if his history showed he had a .900 ave. against the new pitcher that was a poor move.

    There is no way anyone other than DMc should be DFA'd when CC comes back.
    DMc will clear waivers and return to the PawSox. You have to get him off the bench and off the 40 man roster or Tito will continue to use him thinking he will work his way out of his slump.

    Re: DREW DONE WHEN CRAW IS READY?

    When major leaguers don't get consistent at bats, and get switched for lefty versus righty pitching, it must be hard for them to get something going.  Must have been hard for Cameron, DMac and even JD to keep switching in and out of the lineups, and show some level of consistency.

    This lineup being built so heavily with lefty batters must have an Achilles heel against lefty pitchers.  Both Yanks and Phillies have some top notch lefties like CC, Lee and Hamels, who will expose this Achilles heel.

    Sox are lucky that AGonz and Papi can handle lefty pitching well this year.  But that exposes the Crawford, JD and Ells combination of lefty outfielders.

    JD could still be a good bat in the lineup if he can get hot, and could deliver key hits in important games.

    Craw will be our LF, Drew our RF, Ells our CF.  That is going to be the main OF for rest of season.
