    Softie is saying Worthy was never the same, but still a HOF.  Implying that Drew can come back and be a HOF

    Worthy was a teenager when he had the injury. Drew is not a teenager.

    Worthy might have been the best basketball palyer ever, until the injury. Drew wasn't that good before the injury.

    Drew is a value embarrassment with a permanently damaged bad wheel that will make him incapable of playing well enough defensively to be offset by his offense, even with Fenway improved platework.

    Great anology is Boras lying about a blown engine in a car that was wrecked. Drew's damaged goods and none of previous employers wanted anything to do with him. Had it been one employer, maybe an oversight, but Drew is a used car with a bent frame.




    You are making a fool of yourself with this analogy.  



    The funniest part is that he doesn't even see it.

    Signing Drew was a mistake even with a 100% ankle.

    I already made that point, stooge. This thread is about the degree of the mistake, you mental midget.




    just keep doing what you do best... hoping and praying that drew breaks down and the sox finish last...then all will be good in softyland

    I actually made the point first. The minute we signed him.

    Please, try to follow along and keep up.

    This thread is weeks late.

    The ankle injury is not news.

    You are a fool who keeps trolling by with catatonic posts that don't even know what the anology is. 



    Please don't pretend that it was hard to follow.  

    The Drew signing was ridiculous. Your James Worthy analogy more so.

    Seriously.  Take your time.  Make sure things are spelled correctly and that you write in complete sentences.  It should be "A great analogy is " not "great anology is" and it would be "Drew is damaged goods" not "Drew's damaged goods". it isn't that he owns a damaged good store.

    You seem quite intelligent and you make some good points.  It is a shame that you cannot communicate your thoughts well on paper. I am sure you do better in the courtroom.

    Anyway, regardless of his health Drew was overpaid.  I think that is what you were trying to get at before you got distracted and started  talking about James Worthy being injured when he was a teenager, before he was picked number 1 in the draft.  He then became one of the best forwards in the history of the NBA.  He was named as one of the top 50 players of all time.

    I really see why you brought him up in relation to Drew.

    Drew is good SS and a solid hitter.  Better than anything we have.  I approve this deal.

    James Worthy had a serious ankle injury, but he was a teenager. He never was the same, which is a testament to how great a player he was before the injury

    WTF?does anybody see anything wrong with this? read it good.




    It means that even though he was great when he played, he was a better player prior to his injury.

    It probably doesn't matter what I think because I feel you're in a dissecting mode.

    Ampoule, you forgot that you are Ampoule instead of Softlaw, why so defensive? Nobody was accusing you of anything.  You need to remember which moniker that you are using at the moment. Perhaps someone was dissecting Softlaw but why would you take offense at that?




    No, my friend, I think he was unnecessarily dissecting Softlaw's post.

    He saw Worthy play in high school.  Is it unrealistic to think the possibility exists that the injury could have affected him?

    "James Worthy had a serious ankle injury, but he was a teenager. He never was the same, which is a testament to how great a player he was before the injury."

    Softy, that was your weakest argument ever. LMAO. Worthy was a top 50 NBA all time player, an NBA finals MVP, one of the great clutch players to play the game, multiple rings. Oh, and he was a legendary NCAA player as well. 

    "When you have been on this earth long enough, it doesn't take much intelligence to understand athletic mortality."

    Looks like you haven't been on this earth nearly long enough then. If S. Drew is anything like Worthy, as odd as the comparison is, we should hope to lock him up long term and not just for the year. 

    p.s. in the future please post links to your breaking news, your credibilty is not enough to post news without a supporting link.

    Not unrealistic at all. But Softy himself said Worthy retooled his game enough to remain a hall of fame player throughout his career. It's not a good argument for whatever S Drew's problems are to compare him to an all time player in another sport. Softy could have easily picked a player who fell into obscurity after hurting his ankle but that would have prevented him from makin the point he got to watch Worthy play in high school which for some reason is important for us to know.

    Yes, with a messed up ankle a player loses his outside game but not his ability to drive by people and beat them down the court all night long.

    It appears softy is as much a genius on basketball as he is on baseball.

    Good points.

    Actually, it's a moot point since Drew will only be here a year giving the kids on the farm another year of seasoning.

    We'll just have to see what/if any negative effect the ankle has.  At worse, it's only a 1-yr contract.

    Breaking news, it's on this site under extra innings and provided if you had actually read the thread.

    As for credibility, you hvae no crecdiblity as a jude of crediblity.

    . If S. Drew is anything like Worthy, as odd as the comparison is, we should hope to lock him up long term and not just for the year. 

    You can't read. Drew isn't anything like Worthy, other than the permanent damage to his ankle. Worthy was a teenager when the injury happened, Drew is an old man in athletic years. Worthy didn't "retool his game and remain a HOF player, he was one of the greatest talents in basketball history before the injury, as a teenager, and emphasized his inside game because he lost his perimeter game. He became nothing but a borderline top 50 NBA player. Drew wasn't that good before the injury, and is much worse after the injury. In addition, since basketball has an inside game and outside game, Worthy was able to excel because of his inside game. Drew is a SS and can't change his game at all on the defensive end, which is the most important part of being an everyday SS.

    Dim wits. Drew wasn't that good before and he isn't "going to get better because he's recovered from a permanent injury", nor can he change what a SS defender is required to do. Next time, so the dim wits can follow, I'll use the analogy of Wakefield before herniated disc surgery and after. He was terrible before and he was laughable after. 




    After I had back surgery(discectomy..2 of them, same disc, about a year apart), trust me when I say that leg function and flexibility are an issue.  It was a major event to roll over in bed to your side in order to urinate.  I believe Wakefied was nowhere NEAR 100%.  It may have been admirable, but I think his self motives we at the apex of his thoughts.

    Pitiful.   You're only writing that because James Worthy is from North Carolina, the same reason you're up JBJ's azz, Tom Yawkey's, Rick Ferrell's, etc.

    Re: S. Drew has Permanent Ankle Structural Damage

    This is all too hillarious--who really cares whether Drew had an ankle injury-I'm sure looked this over 20 ways and had specialists review medical records.

    Follow me here this is MadMc math:

    The great thing is Drew is getting $9.5 for one year--if he goes down we have a guy getting $2 M waiting for his chance and we have another getting the Min League min.-- so we have 3 people that can play the position--so worst case scenario the position is covered and would cost $12 M. $4 M per. Does that make the Softy's and others' worried about JH portfolio taking much of a hit feel better?

    I ask, who else would you start at SS and how many prospects would you trade for him? Drew is as good as most--so he has an ankle problem in his medical history--are you as worried about Pedroia who the Sox are talking about extending--he had an injured foot...
