Yankees hit 3 HRs in 8-run 2nd inning, beat BoSox 13-8

Stephen Drew and the rest of the bottom of the batting order helped the New York Yankees open an 11-run lead. The Yankees needed almost all of it to leave Fenway Park just one game behind the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL East. ''They put up a big number, and we were able to make it stick,'' Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after New York beat Boston 13-8 on Wednesday. ''When you get...

It's Unlimited Roster Day in the Yankiverse, meaning Ackley, Refsnyder, Pirela, Ryan and Drew is now our five-man 2B rotation

Wouldn't you know it? Just as the cavalry arrives, shirts off and guns blazing - when we suddenly have second basemen than starting pitchers, old Stephen Drew gets hot and raises his average to a Ruthian .203! Yes, Stephen Drew, past two oh two, HOW DO YOU DO!For the home stretch, we can light our cigars with second basemen. The question: Which will start in the One Game Bud Selig...

The Offensive Feats of Stephen Drew

As this is a subsection of Baseball Prospectus dedicated to the New York Yankees, it is quite likely that you, the reader, are familiar with Stephen Drew. For the uninitiated, Stephen Drew is the second baseman for the Yankees, and has been since around this time last year. He became a free agent after being acquired in a trade last season, and was then brought back for a year at...

Yankees (and Drew Too!) Take Care of Business vs Braves

Here’s what you need to know about the Yankees weekend sweep of the Braves. Stephen Drew, the much maligned 2B, closed Sunday's game with his season average over .200 (.201 to be exact) for the first time all season. It was just that kind of weekend for the Yankees who put up 38 runs against the Braves pitching staff, including 15 in Friday’s opener and 20 in Sunday’s finale...

Thoughts On The Problems With The Yankees Offense

The last seven games for the New York Yankees felt a lot like the last two seasons for the New York Yankees. Especially the 2014 season, when their offense was consistently non-existent. Surely this sounds familiar: A lineup that keeps failing to get hits with RISP. An injured Mark Teixeira taking too long to heal. (I guess that no-fun diet can't do everything.) Alex Rodriguez...

Moral of Hope Week: You are trapped for all of eternity with Stephen Drew at 2B

Months ago, it became tiring, whining about Stephen Drew. I suspect it's tiring now, preparing to read yet another post of me whining about Stephen Drew. At times, we should wonder if this is like a bad Mickey Rourke movie, and we died and went to Hell, without knowing it, and we are condemned to forever watch Stephen Drew. That would explain things. It would also mean Stephen...

No One Is Talking About It

I think Brett Gardiner needs a rest.He has been hitting, lately, like Stephen Drew.  Not as well, actually.Brett carried the offense for much of the first half of the year and, legitimately, made the all star team.  Joe is resting other guys to some apparent advantage.It is time to rest Gardy.Even his base stealing has gone into the soup ( I know, he stole one yesterday.  But...

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...

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...
