In response to softlaw2's comment:
S. Drew's never played a game for the Red Sox. To compare him to Pedroia and Middlebrooks is utter nonsense.
You've made it clear that you want S. Drew to start. You really don't need to post here, becuase all you do is ape what management does. That middle management has proven to be incompetent, and has the money spent and zero playoff wins to prove it.
All on this board no that managment gifted the job to a 10 million dollar reject, who hasn't hit for years. And the Red Sox pitching staff is getting ready to have a higher ERA and WHIP as soon as Iglesias is sent back to the minors with the other overmatched member of this team, Bradley.
After 7 games, I haven't seen two players who are overmatched and/or who need to be replaced by Nava and Gomes and S. Drew. But let's not question a move that is going to be made. This team can be better than they have been doing with the current roster and playing time allocation, with managment pulling the levers on roster moves. I can't wait to see it.
Heres a little excerpt of my post which is 2 posts above yours...
I like Iggy and would like him to start as well, but I, unlike some here, realize that this is the situation we have. We are NOT going to sit Drew. I dont downplay Drew as a player because I want Iggy to start. And I do want Iggy to start. I deal with the reality of the situation and understand it.
Maybe you should take a reading comprehension course...Oh, and some spelling lessons or at least learn how to use the spell check...Mr. Lawyer.
He has a hard time with that sort of thing. He gets really angry and starts typing too fast and makes a lot of mistakes.
My point of view, which seems similar to yours, is that Iggy would have been a good choice this year, but the Red Sox went and spent a lot of money on Drew, which means they will start him.
Whether or not that is a mistake or not remains to be seen and until then I will support Drew even though I would rather have Iggy start.
It is what it is.
