If he weren’t blatantly wearing a “Giants” sweatshirt, wouldn’t you think this kid’s an O’s fan?
In other news, um… in actual news… the schedule is out for next year- opening against Detroit! Which means coworker Jeff and I will have to draw a line across the office.
Home opener will be against the Rays.
If you buy me a ticket, I’ll even stay at your house!
The internet is full of lively discussions about our Soxies. One that caught my eye: Why is JD Drew still playing for the Sox?
Anyone else think he sort of flew under the radar? He’s inconsistent. When he is good, he is very good. But when he is bad, he is… um… blah.
I don’t know. It’s hard, this transition. From being a JD Drew apologist to starting to see merit in the discussion…
Bill Ballou of the Worcester Telegram says there are a few reasons Drew’s still in the lineup:
Money is one reason. Even though Drew’s contract is almost up, the Sox still hope for one final hot month out of him to help them win in 2011. And I can’t imagine Reddick won’t take over in right field starting with this homestand when Ortiz’ suspension is done with. Drew’s career has, indeed, been a history of unfulfilled potential. It’s an interesting business, since he has made about as much money not fulfilling that potential as he would have had his career been as good as expected.
Thoughts? Is he really THAT bad? Can’t we put him the okay plus category?
Bad news. ESPN says it’s likely we will not get Beltran.
So, if Beltran’s out, who is your ideal add? I hesitate to put any temps on the roster. I’d like more in-it-for-the-long-haul guys. No more Jason Bay heartbreakers.
oh. We won, btw. 4-0. How do you like them apples, Showalter?
