I think Nomar still has the same agent, too. You'd think he would've ditched him after totally screwing up the Boston deal.

As mentioned above, it actually happens quite often in baseball.
Lotta players are drafted out of high school, weigh their options and go to college instead then re-enter the draft.
such as roger clemens deciding to go to the university of texas instead of the mets, who originaly drafted him (imagine doc and clemens coming up together on the same team? yowza... strikeouts, crack and steroids for everyone!)

nomar was also drafted originaly by the milwaukee brewers, went back to school, drafted later by the sawks, signed the deal.

I am glad we all have mentioned that people go back to college all of the time and have over looked my post about J.D. Drew and Harrington!

Oh, by the way, people go back to college all the time after being drafted.

I was actually referring more to your despisal of Varitek.
Everyone knows about Drew and what he did...but his is a rare case, a case like Varitek's is fairly common.


BTW...Did you know that lots of baseball players these days go to college after being drafted.

I guess it's wrong to dislike a player, or even worse, a Red Sock!

Oh, guys....did you know that baseball players often go back to college (or, actually go to college) after being drafted.

Would you change your opinion of Drew if he had signed a free-agent deal in Japan instead of some chumpy unaffiliated minor league?

Big Grin Drew in Japan would have been out-of-sight and out-of-mind

Chumpy?


Daryll Strawberry
Rey Ordonez
Leon Durham
Matt Nokes
J.D. Drew
Jason Varitek (O.K....he is CHUMPY! )
Jack Morris
Matt Nokes
Derek Lowe
Kevin Millar


They are owned by Bill Murray and Mike Veeck, son of Bill Veeck. The team has thrived five miles away from a major league stadium for 15 years now.

I enjoyed watching Drew there - despite his "holdout." I enjoyed watching Leon Durham and Matty Nokes realize they were done. I enjoyed lighting a cigarette for Daryll Strawberry at his locker after he had hit three homers one night (this was before his return to the Yankees). I enjoyed watching Ila Borders become the first female to play men's professional baseball.

Chumpy? hardly. Even with a pig as a ballboy.

At least Julian Tavarez didn't let Boston down tonight.

He's actually pitching well lately. Anytime that happens it's a bonus.

He's been a very pleasant surprise his last few outings. I have to give him credit for that. He's picked it up whereas Wake seems to have hit a bump in the road. If this trend continues, I wonder if that could change the thinking that Tavarez is the odd man out when Lester comes back.
