Don Orsillo, Jerry Remy Break Down ‘Pizzagate,’ Jenny Dell Gives Insight Into Her Cooking Experience (Audio)

Who can forget “Pizzagate?” It was the seventh inning of the Red Sox’ Patriots’ Day tilt with the Angels back in 2007. J.D. Drew hit a popup down the left-field line that landed in the first row. In addition to a fan spilling beer all over the place, a rather bizarre event took place. A different fan a few rows back took it upon himself to toss a slice of pizza at the fan...

Clay Buchholz injures hamstring to kick off spring training

Sorry about the pic of J.D. Drew. It is just instinct to post a photo of Drew when I hear of a hamstring injury. I have to shake that old habit. It seems as if the luck of the Celtics has already rubbed off on the Red Sox, as Clay Buchholz injured his right hamstring on the first day of pitching workouts. Farrell said the team will know more Wednesday but added, “it was enough...

AP source: Red Sox agree to deal with Stephen Drew

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that shortstop Stephen Drew and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a $9.5 million, one-year contract. Drew will take a physical before the deal can be finalized, the person said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not complete. Drew hit .250 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 39 games...

Red Sox Sign Stephen Drew To One-Year Deal

Free agent shortstop Stephen Drew agreed to a one-year, $9.5 million deal with the Red Sox on Monday, likely becoming the club’s stopgap option at shortstop in 2013. The 29-year old shortstop is the younger brother of retired major league outfielder J.D. Drew, who played in Boston from 2007-2011. Like his older brother, Drew was a highly-touted prospect and a former first-round...

Your Morning Dump...where in the world is JD Drew?

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. "In the end, if I had been completely healthy when the season ended and we would have made a strong run at things … things didn't unfold that way so there were a bunch of question marks in everybody...

Report: Red Sox Haven't Inquired About J.D. Drew's Availability in Wake of Jacoby Ellsbury's Injury

J.D. Drew isn't walking through that door, fans. With Jacoby Ellsbury hitting the 15-day disabled list with a sublexed shoulder, it's reasonable to think the Red Sox are doing their homework when it comes to available outfielders. Apparently, Drew hasn't been one of the assignments. The Sox did not inquire about Drew's availability in the wake of Ellsbury's injury...

The BP First Take: Wednesday, January 25 by Daniel Rathman

Earlier this week, word began to spread about J.D. Drew hanging up his cleats. On Tuesday afternoon, Jon Heyman confirmed the retirement rumors. Just hours later, the story was an afterthought, thanks to Prince Fielder’s blockbuster deal with the Tigers. If this is indeed the end for Drew, he will leave behind what, by most standards, is an excellent career. Over 1,566 big-league...

Report: J.D. Drew 'Very Likely to Retire'

It was pretty obvious that J.D. Drew's career with the Red Sox was over after he became a free agent following the 2011 season. Now, the 36-year-old could be hanging it up altogether. Drew is "very likely to retire," according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. Drew was in the final season of a five-year, $70 million contract in 2011. He appeared in just 81 games for Boston...

Vote: Who Is the Greatest Red Sox Player to Wear No. 7?

The Red Sox have retired J.D. Drew's No. 7. OK, so not really. But if you found yourself walking around Fenway Park on Friday, you might have thought that was the case. The "2" in Carlton Fisk's retired No. 27 was missing on Fenway's brick wall on Van Ness St., which caught the attention of a few astute Sox fans. Drew even responded to the mishap, saying, "...
