Stephen Drew chose the Nationals over offers to start elsewhere

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Stephen Drew could’ve leveraged his bounce-back 2016 season into a starting job as a free agent over the winter. There’s a market for veterans capable of playing three infield positions with some pop at the plate and tempting offers to start were presented to him. A few years ago, Drew probably […]

Stephen Drew makes all his money in right field

There is an inherent opportunism to writing that I occasionally find a bit uncomfortable. Often I find myself cheering for specific outcomes because they would make a long-standing idea of mine become timely. If I’m dying to write something about Alex’s Rodriguez’s opposite-field power and he puts one out to right field it won’t make or break a story, but it’s a nifty...

Stay Evil: The Yankees have one more month to keep proving everybody wrong.

Today, I shall bend over, press my nose into the honeypot, and eat crow. Stephen Drew crow. Yes, Stephen "Larrupin Lou" Drew crow. For five months, I have been bellowing at the player, the manager, the team and the cosmos over what I've viewed as the baseball equivalent of a ruptured billiard. All season, Drew has been hitting comfortably below .200 - without changing his swing,...

Tick tock, tick tock... Stephen Drew is on the clock

Last night, by 2015 standards, Stephen Oris Drew had a solid game: 0-3 with a walk. He got on base via an error - then got doubled up on a liner (not entirely his fault.) At 2B, he didn't Yangervis or Nunez any grounders. Yep, a big night, all around.That's how miserable our 2B situation has become. A walk = big night.Watching Drew - uniform dirty, teeth perpetually gritted...

New York Yankees: Stephen Drew to start at second base?

After Robinson Cano’s departure from the New York Yankees, it has been extremely hard to fill the void at second base. Cano was a power-house hitter, a stand out asset to the New York starting lineup. In 2013, his last season with the Yankees, he batted .314, while slamming 27 homeruns and knocking in 107 RBI’s. His talent speaks for itself. He could have easily been the next...

Report: Stephen Drew's asking price for 2015 is '9M to $10M'

Stephen Drew certainly thinks a lot of himself. The free-agent veteran infielder has drawn interest from a number of teams this offseason, including the Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics, but he might continue to remain on the open market if agent Scott Boras doesn’t lower his asking price substantially. According to Joel Sherman of the...
