In Response to Re: Another Drew thread.
[QUOTE]The world is made up of extroverts and introverts and it's been my experience that extroverts don;t understand and consistently misinterpret introverts. Drew is an extreme introvert. Deal with it; it;s who he is and he's not going to change. But remember, last night he got the comeback started by driving in the 1st run with a single and had a hand in the tieing run by moving a runner from 2nd to 3rd by pulling a ground ball (professional hitting that the rest of the team has has had a lot of trouble doing lately). Do I think he likes playing baseball? No, I don't think he does. I don't know that a lot of professional athletes necessarily enjoy what they are doing for a living. But for that matter, how many of us are in love with our jobs each and every day?

This sort of misses the point.
1st..... Drew made it clear before the game that he "felt terrible." OR.. whatever word he said. He didn't want to play. He basically had to be FORCED to get out there & help his team! This, & his SITTING OUT month after month with bogus "injuries," lets us all know that he is a SLACKER!!!! I could care less if he's an introvert or extrovert, it's about character!!! HE shows NONE!
2nd..... YES! He helped us out last night! We all know he is very capable of helping out in a big way!!!!! SO.......... Where the hell has he been these past several months???? I don't buy the "injury" excuse! His finger? The latest excuse! He felt "terrible" yesterday???? How many MLB players sit out for WEEKS with a hangnail???
3rd...... I'm glad he's back to help us out down the stretch, in our final hours of need!!!! BUT! Will he go back out there, or claim his finger hurts again. The guys know they can't count on him, & they don't even bother to challenge him on his "injuries," as they know it's not worth it!
SHAME ON DREW!!!!! He is an embarrassment to his faith. He talks a lot about his faith, but I see nothing in his career that lets me know that he understands that his faith requires CHARACTER in his JOB! It takes CHARACTER to honor the contract he signed! It takes CHARACTER to put his lack of passion for the game aside, & DO HIS JOB to the best of his ability! OTHERWISE...... He should have quit, & voided his contract.
HAVING SAID ALL THAT........ I hope he will step up & help out this crashing team with all he has left!!!!! WE could really use him right now!!!!!
