Any deal involving JD Drew is a disaster.

Does Vegas have odds of him getting booed at the home opener posted yet?

Not a happy camper here.

The Yanks have offered Andy Pettite 15mil for 1 year. Andy's good but he gets injured every year and the Yanks let him go originally because of that. When he's healthy though, he's a number 2 starter.

And the Red Sox just signed a 31-year-old shortstop with career numbers of .278/.341/.421 to a 4-year, $36M deal. Outstanding.

i remember how everybody thought the cardinals had made the worst move out of the ss swap between anaheim, st louis and boston that year.

wrong


and giving carp the extension now as opposed to later gives carpenter his dues now and enables them to go after a pitcher like schmidt who they have interest in. you want to take care of your own best players before signing somebody else not as good to a better deal than they have.

i cant imagine red sox fans are happy with this move
If he's the #5 hitter behind David Ortiz and Money Ramirez, I'm OK with signing him, though obviously the money is ludicrous (but everyone is getting ludicrous money this offseason).

If he ends up the #4 hitter behind David Ortiz with Money Ramirez playing on the west coast...I'm very displeased with the signing.

zito's a boras client. if he takes less money to come to the mets, i'd be shocked... pleased, but shocked. boras clients always go for the money... that's why you sign boras as your agent. boras will have you sign with an independent minor league team if they offer the most money.

as for JD Drew... that's just nucking futs. 15 million per year for that bum makes carlos beltran's contract look like a steal.

"With David and Manny, if they want to walk those guys, we want them to pay a steep price," manager Terry Francona said.
well ya shouldn't have signed a friggin fragile panty waste like JD Drew then you fucking douchebags.

me thinks theo's been hittin' the gang backstage at pearl jam shows a little too hard after that 5 game sweep.

and of course, not like they ever really had a reason to complain in the first place with the money they spend... but if i ever hear another red sox owner, gm, player, intern, secretary and/or fan bitch about the ridiculous money that the yankees spend, i will personally smack them across the face.

.283, 20 homers, 100 RBIs last year for Drew.

if pujols or ryan howard were free agents this year, what would they get? 30 per? unbelievable... once again it seems as if every team except for the mets and yankees have lost their F'ing minds this offseason.

Whether you slice it at $70 mil over 5 years or $56 over 4 plus a 5th year option, its still only $14 million per year.

You need to get your abacas tuned up.

I'm sure we'll be hearing from both of them real soon on something.
