In response to moonslav59's comment:
Should we bench every hitter who goes 1 for 12 at any given moment in their careers?
I'm not saying I have confidence in Drew's bat: I don't, but still...
Well guess what Moon, Farrell all but said that changes are coming for tonight on the left side of the infield. They are a combined 2 for 22 in this series.
Has Drew looked good at the plate? Even remotely? No.
No he hasn't, but neither did Napoli a couple months back when you were calling for his demotion or benching, and he got hot.
Look, I'm fine with starting Bogey over Middy or Drew tonight, but my point is that all players go through tough streaks, and if a manager knee-jerked them out of the line-up every time, we'd miss the games where they turn it around.
Yes, they are 2 for 22, and Papi is 1 for 15. Others are struggling as well.
I'd sit Middy tonight vs the righty, and if Drew looks bad again tonight, I'd maybe sit him on Saturday. That being said, I'm not expecting Bogey to light a fire either game.
