I am the biggest critic of JD Drew, during the offseason I referred to him as the $14 million grand slam. So I think it's fair I give him some praise. Since David Ortiz has gone down Drew has filled his spot beautifully in the line-up. Hitting homeruns, driving in runs, and just being a guy you can count on day in and day out. His defense has been solid, and the throw it the plate yesterday was perfect, one hop up the first base line. If he throws it three feet to Varitek's left, V-Tek is concussed and out for 6 weeks. That is exactly what the Red Sox don't need right now. So well done JD Drew and keeping playing like you are playing and earn that paycheck.
Craig Hansen pitched well yesterday in a tight spot. With a hard fastball with movement and a sick slider he has potential to be a solid bullpen guy. With Hansen, Oki, and Papelbon the Red Sox could potentially shorten every game to about 6 innings.
Yankee fans have you heard? Mike and the Maddog are splitting up. This is bigger than Billy and Christie spliting up. The big question, who stays on WFAN?
