But No Matter What Happens This Weekend ...
Please Just Don't Boo, J.D. Drew. Thank You.

Red Sox captain Jason Varitek, Eagle-Tribune, 9.11.07: "I wish the fans understood how much power they have. They can help J.D. Drew. They really can. ...

"Why not give him a standing ovation when he comes to plate. They did it for Julio Lugo and it helped. It really did. The energy the fans give you can carry a team. Trust me, I know. I can feel it. But the fans can also make you want to get under a rock. ...

"He had some good at-bats, which is really what I look at instead of hits or batting average. That will be forgotten by tonight, though, because it's J.D. Drew. And that's not right."
