If you thought J.D. Drew didn’t show enough emotion while with the Red Sox, wait until you see this slugger.
Scientists at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo created a baseball-playing robot that can adjust to pitch speeds. The robot has an artificial brain that reads the speed of a pitch as it’s coming at him. It can adjust to each pitch individually.

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...

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...
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...
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.
