    I think someone screwed the pooch on this one.  Drew was never a good hitter.  For him to miss spring training and until June, most knew he would have issues at the plate.  Not sure how the front office, when they own this web site, did not know it.

    Bill's a troll.  Only reason why he started another thread similar to other ones is because of his lack of respect for those original thread starters.

    I only have one question?  Does anyone know if Mr. and Mrs. Drew have any more offspring and if they do, do they have access to the incriminating information on Ben and Theo that J.D. and Stephen have?

    While it was painfully obvious to even the most casual observer that Drew was worth less than a bag of balls after his horrendous playoff run last year, Ben and the great minds of the organization took a puff of the Boras magic smoke and tripped all over themselves to sign the guy just because there would be over 40 teams looking to give the guy 5 yrs/80 million right after the draft.  Just ask Boras.

    Boras may have had more to do with this than we thought, according to Peter Gammons. 

    This Herald story talks about that and notes Ben's response when asked by Gammons:

    Thuis is the second time a Drew has needed the GM to cover for him.

    Last one was JD and Theo.

    It's not my money and it's only for the rest of this season. The reason I hate the deal is it stunts Bogaerts' development at SS. That is assuming the Sox have not given up on the idea of Bogaerts at SS.

    Bogaerts is better at 3B. Adding Drew, as of right now, is absolutely meaningless, though at the time, they had to do something about the abject failure of Middlebrooks. However, now that we are out of it, who cares how Drew does?

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

    Re: The 10 MIL BORA$$ MAN, still a NO SHOW........SOX HAVE BEEN,

    It's hard to say the Sox are completely out of it. I can't see them catching the Jays, but they are not very far out of a wildcard slot. 
    You never know, but that if they got in,  Lester and Lackey might carry them again. Ortiz could get hot, Bogaerts might be a terror, and so knows? It's a real long shot though.  That is how they beat the Tigers and the Cardinals though. No hitting to speak of. Kind of a preview of this years lack of offense. 
    Bogaerts is better at third now, but third is an easier position to play. He was not horrible at short and was improving. Now they have blown the opportunity to let this play out over the rest of the year. 
    For basically the same reason they need to stick with Bradley and see if he begins to hit. I still think he will.

    No question the Drew signing was a big waste. He better get out on the field, or he will hear the wrath of fans. It was an absolutely awful signing. The Red Sox negotiated against themselves.

    Hindsight is 20/20.  Nobody could have foreseen Holt going on a tear.  The biggest concern going into this season, IMO, was lack of depth on the left side of the infield.  When Middlebrooks was injured, signing Drew (or some other starting SS or 3B) was a necessity.  Drew was the most logical and best candidate to sign for many reasons.

    Did you skip the playoffs last year, because the Sox were doing so well?

    Drew made a lot of great defensive plays.

    There's a reason Herrera is a utility infielder.

    Not saying Hererra not a decent fielder, but there's no comparison.
