When Jose Iglesias had his average at a ridiculous .440 and Stephen Drew was struggling at .215 the question was put to the veteran shortstop: Are you worried about your job security?
Now Stephen is a Drew and Drews are amiable and polite by nature as J.D. proved for five years in Boston. The younger Drew plays with more of an edge than his laconic brother however and at the mere suggestion someone else would take his at-bats a scowl creased his face.
“As for that question . . .” he started with more than a hint of irritation. Then he composed himself.
“He’s playing well. Good for him” Drew said of Iglesias. “I’ve got a track record. Eventually this little slump I’m in is going to be over and we’ll move past it.”
It might have taken a while but Drew most definitely is making good on that prediction.
With the Red Sox down to their final two outs and in danger of losing 2-of-3 to the lowly Astros last night Drew delivered in a big way blasting a go-ahead three-run homer to turn a 5-

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Shortstop Stephen Drew is riding an eight game hitting streak in which he is batting .464, going 13-for-28 with a double, a home run, seven RBI, and nine walks. That streak just happens to coincide with the first...
OK, Red Sox fans. Have you warmed up to Stephen Drew yet?
Drew is quickly erasing the concerns that accompanied him to Boston and that only grew as he battled injuries this season. The Red Sox shortstop connected on a game-winning, three-run homer in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s 7-5 victory over the Astros, and he has earned a reputation as one of the club’s most clutch performers...
For a while the Sox seemed headed to a frustrating loss. **** tons of men left on base, no hits when it mattered (a paltry 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position), Bobby V no doubt watching from his secret base on the moon, cackling about how John Farrell would be denied his better-than-all-of-last-season seventieth win.
But then the Baseball Gods (a division of GAMMONS, INC....
Even as the Red Sox’ play continues to fluctuate, Stephen Drew has been steady at the plate.
It wasn’t always that way, though, and Drew has found his own way to silence his haters. The shortstop has gotten a hit in each of the last nine games and continues to anchor the bottom of the lineup.
Check out the above video to hear why NESN Nation’s Alison Smith thinks Drew is the...
Ever since Jose Igelsias was traded, Stephen Drew has transformed into a new man and has been on fire. Nothing changed last night, as Drew played hero and saved the Red Sox late.
Ryan Dempster took the mound for the Sox against the Astros and again, had another bland start. The 6th inning was his worst, where the Astros put together a string of
hits, pounding away on Dempster...

Jake Peavy‘s debut for the Red Sox was everything the team had hoped for and more, as the righty surrendered only two runs on four hits through seven strong innings. The team will call Peavy’s number again on Friday, hoping he can deliver a similar performance against a surging Kansas City Royals team that took the first game of the series on Thursday.
Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury...
It wasn’t easy in Houston, but the Red Sox left the Space City with two wins in three tries and move on to the Show-Me State. Boston (70-46) had yet another come-from-behind win, this time thanks to a three-run ninth-inning home run by Stephen Drew, giving the Red Sox their 70th win of 2013, one more than they had all of 2012. And there are still...
(Michael Dwyer/AP) The Red Sox, fresh off a dramatic come-from behind win against the Houston Astros, will look to keep the good vibes going as they begin a series on the road against the Kansas City Royals tonight. With one out in the top of the ninth in last night’s contest, Stephen Drew hit a three-run blast to give the Red Sox a 7-5 victory, and in turn their 70th win of the...
If there’s one thing that many teams in the MLB have learned, it’s to not give the Red Sox the opportunity to catch up. Because chances are, they will.
With Stephen Drew’s ninth inning three-run homer Wednesday night against the Astros, the Sox notched their 27th comeback win on the season. That’s a little over one-third of their total winsn...
(Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)Your Boston Red Sox have won six of their last seven games coming from behind. Last night, their 27th comeback win of 2013 was a 7-5 win over the hapless Astros. The two big blows were a 2-run HR by Jonny Gomes in the seventh and a three-run HR by Stephen Drew in the top of the ninth. Not exactly a "walk-off", but it was their 18th win in...
The Red Sox don’t like having to come from behind in the ninth inning — or so they say.
Ninth-inning drama has become a common occurrence for this year’s Red Sox, and Boston once again rose to the occasion in the final frame in Wednesday’s game against Houston. Jonny Gomes homered in the seventh inning, and Stephen Drew then drilled a three-run homer in the ninth inning to...
Jose Iglesias has found a new agent to go with his new team.
Iglesias, formerly represented by Relativity Sports, has changed agencies and will now be represented by Scott Boras, according to Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal.
Boras, of course, is the most recognizable agent in baseball. He currently represents many of the game’s biggest stars, and he’s known for sending...
According to Sports Business Journal, former Red Sox SS phenom Jose Iglesias has switched agencies and is now being represented by Uber-Agent Scott Boras. Chalk up another reason why the Jake Peavy trade was a wise one—even though Iglesias is not eligible for free agency for another five years. Anytime you can avoid dealing with Boras and his three-ring binder madness, it's...
