Washington Nationals: What position will Stephen Drew play?

The Washington Nationals signed infielder Stephen Drew to a one-year, $3 million contract on Wednesday. Drew played for the Red Sox in 2013 when they won the World Series, and was traded to the Yankees a third of the way through the 2014 season. Drew had a .253 batting average with an on base percentage of .333 over 124 games during his 2013 season with the Red Sox. During the 2014...

Stephen Drew Official

The 32 year old Drew hit 17 home runs for the Yankees last season, but struggled to a .201 batting average. Drew can...

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...

Yankees will be patient with Stephen Drew

Whether fans like it or not, the New York Yankees will be patient with Stephen Drew. He gave everyone a reason to exhale and deliberate on his status with the club after a pinch-hit grand slam in Monday night’s 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.Stephen DrewPhoto courtesy of Keith Allison via Flickr.Drew is much maligned after putting together what was one of the worst seasons...

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...

Boston Red Sox must continue to experiment

With the Boston Red Sox posting more than three runs just once in the past ten games, it is clear that their two extra inning wins did not jump start the offense like they would have wanted. Many players are not playing anywhere near where they should be and with the starting pitching blowing up against the Mariners, there’s no way the Sox are going to win a slugfest. Brock Holt...

Questioning The Stephen Drew Signing

The Boston Red Sox recently signed shortstop Stephen Drew to a one year deal worth $8 million. Since that signing in mid- May, Drew has played in just four games. He has been activated since June 2nd; however he has missed time against left handed pitchers and also with an oblique injury. Drew missed a game two nights ago yet again with the oblique injury while Jonathan Herrera...
