    There's a new rule here to not create thread titles that are longer than one or two lines -- unless of course you don't believe you can get anyone to respond unless you make it 10 lines. jsyk

    Until he broke his ankle, Stephen Drew went on the DL twice in his career. He's not his brother.

    JD Drew averaged 131 games a season in the first four years of his five year contract with the Red Sox. In the last year, he was 35 years old and was benched to a back-up/platoon role.

    The notion that JD Drew was a DL permanent resident like Ellsbury is utterly absurd. Peter, you've made this silly comment that Ellsbury may end up back with the Red Sox and that would be good. Ellsbury couldn't keep up with JD Drew, when it comes to showing up for work, in his twenties. No way should the Red Sox pay FA years for Ellsbury. If they con't have a better value and fit by then, on the farm, they have the great old man Shane on the books for nearly 40 million dollars!

    As for Peter's high praise for S. Drew, S. Drew is damaged goods. But even assuming he's not, he should not be compared to his much more talented older brother, JD.

    Paying nearly 10 million for S. Drew was a value and fit mistake, Peter. The comparisions to JD are wrong, but not for the absurd reasons you are projecting.

    Do some research, Peter, for a change.

    [/QUOTE]


    His audience is who? red sox fans. If the stigma among RS fans is that JD was fragile then when you read his statement you know he is addressing that stigma. Idiotic Rs fans want to lump S Drew in with his bro because he got injured Abraham is trying to deter people from labeling Stephen Drew just as RS fans did to Nancy Drew. Your reading into it a bit much there softy.

    Not at all. In fact, he's so shallow he has it backwards. Drew never had a permanent wheel injury like that. The comparison is invalid, not because S. Drew isn't damaged goods. Is Drew is damaged goods and a serous injury risk, even at one year and 10 million. It's invalid because the premise is flawed that JD Drew and 131 games  year average for 4 seasons was "fragile". He's also shallow in his glossing over "getting Ellsbury back after a mediocre year would be a good thing", at the same time he's making things up about JD Drew being "DL fixture".

    [/QUOTE]


    your still reading too much into it... As soon as my best friend heard we we signed SD he called me up and asked "why would we sign Nancy Drews brother?!" and he is one of the most logical people i know. but because of Nancys reputation and the fact that they are brothers and are naturally going to be compared he didn't like the signing. How many posters here did the same thing?? many. Abraham probably caught onto this too and is trying to dispell any preconceived notions about SD. Nancy is retired and not on the team anymore, no one is going to change their opinion of him now..... SD still has a future on the team so its important that people don't label him wrongly becuase of his brothers baggage.

    No, that's not what Peter was "picking up on", nor was it the message Peter was projecting. He was simply doing what he typically does, failure to do the research and serving the function of pre-season cheerleader to justify the 10 million unloaded on the damaged goods, S. Drew.

    [/QUOTE]


    yes it was you fool. What a hypocrite you are bashing Peter for not doing any research and then proclaiming SD is damaged goods without knowing anything about his injury.

    Then in using the criteria of "brothers" we'd pass on Hank Aaron because he's Tommy's brother and pass on Pedro Gonales because he's Ramon's brother. 

    I'm not comparing Stephen Drew to Hank Aaron or Pedro Gonzales, but just because someone is someone else's brother doesn't mean he's just like his brother.

    We might well pass on Pedro Gonzalez if we could still sign Pedro Martinez .

     without knowing anything about his injury.

    Metal plate, ligament damage and broken ankle bone. That's a little more than "without knowing anything".

    I never thought it would come to this, but this board was cheerleading Mike Aviles, last season. No suprise that a borken body pulled out of a dumpster is now "healthy because of vaunted Red Sox testing".

    and he has healed form his injury... pedrioa broke his foot in half and had screws put into it and it healed fine. he came back. but drew is damaged goods because you don't like him.

    I guess he's only working part time then.  I'm a cheerleader all the time.  I don't wear the skirt, but I bought into the attitude way, way back in school days.

    Huge difference between a much younger Pedroia and a fracture in the small bones of the foot, and ligament damage and a plate on a broken ankle on a much older S. Drew. He's damaged goods because his medical record and age say he's damaged goods.

    I was a huge fan of JD Drew, who was absurdly called a "Nancy" when he averaged, in his thirties, 131 games palyed over each one of the four seasons he was with the Red Sox, being benched at age 35 in his las season. I don't dislike S. Drew, at all. However, it's embarrassing to hand out nearly 10 million to a guy that's not a fit or a value as the starting SS. If they put Drew on the trade market the response would be requiests for a ton of money and a lot of laughter.

    Drew's hitting slashes will likely get a boost from Fenway, but that's not where he'll fail to do the job. He'll hurt the pitching staff because of his year long SS play with a bad wheel and weak range and agility in the field. The incompetent Red Sox management will think, from his hitting, that they really found a gem. Laughable!

    [/QUOTE]


    you've never seen his medical record! so without knowing the specifics of his injury, the treatment, rehabilitation and the recovery of his ankle you have no clue wether he is "damaged goods" or not. You know who does have access to his files? the red sox. if it is so easy for an idiot like you to see his ankle is shot then they should have picked up on it before they even looked at his medical files and they wouldn't have signed him.

    watching Greys Anatomy does not make you a doctor soft one.

    The Red Sox had access to Schilling's files. They had access to Mike Lowell's files. One doesn't have to a Doctor to understand that ligament damage and a broken ankle for an athlete in the last stage of his career is the damaged goods that made  his market a one year market.

    ............he is 29

    last stage of his career?! dipped into the bottle a little early today didn't ya?
