Does J.D. Drew Still Play for the Red Sox?
Wilbur: Sit and Spin
"I liked the way I mixed my pitches. I broke some bats. I was able to throw some first-pitch splits to Granderson and Swisher. I felt I had good command. I felt my legs were underneath me. If I can duplicate the way I felt tonight for the rest of the season, I’ll be extremely happy with that." -- Jonathan Papelbon... umm, so what about that game-blowing homer pitch out over the plate to Granderson?
"Someone inside the Red Sox organization needs to request that everyone look themselves in the mirrors. Yes, they lost 2 out of 3 to the Yanks at the start of the season and no one should overreact over that. Especially considering the start to the '09 season.
"What bothers me is the nonchalant approach to baseball this team has. I doubt I'd ever get under their skin, but I've never seen such poor FIGHT in a team that has the second highest payroll in the league. 162 game season sport or not, you fight and claw for everything. Boston has not done any of that. Not this year and not last year.
"If the Sox do indeed look themselves in the mirror, they will need to solve the Ortiz and J.D. Drew problems immediately. They will stop looking at certain seasons, especially by admission, as bridge years to the future and play to win every year. Prospects have too many questions and rarely make an immediate impact. Find and trade for the best players who fit your profile, don't try to develop the limited." -- Alan S., Red Sox Nation
