The Red Sox, in the offseason, signed Stephen Drew to a one-year deal worth $9.5 million, hoping that he would live up to his contract. So far, it does not look good. Drew has been injured since March 7th due to a concussion, and it’s looking less likely that he will be ready to play on […]

2013 Red Sox Depth Chart: Shortstop – Stephen Drew, Pedro Ciriaco, Jose Iglesias

This offseason, the Red Sox filled a void they had up the middle with the signing of Stephen Drew, younger brother of J.D. Drew and will also wear No. 7, to a one-year, $9.5 M deal. It was a great signing in my opinion on many fronts. Yes, they overpaid for another Drew, but it is […]
