For What It's Worth ...
A Year Ago, the Sox Made the Costliest Error on J.D.
So Now They'll Have to Pay the Steepest Price for J.D. Drew
J.D.: Rock-Solid, Boston-Loving, Face-of-the-Franchise Leadoff Hitter Extraordinaire Got a 4-Year, $40 Million Dollar Token Offer
J.D. Drew: So Now a Soft, Oft-Injured and Out-of-the-Lineup Nonchalant Is Going to Get a 4-Year, $56 Million Deal?
Is Anyone in the Red Sox Front Office Ever Going to Accept Responsibility for This Mother of All Fiascos?
"His [J.D. Drew's] asking price, according to sources, is at least $14 million. That's $4 million a year more than the Sox offered last winter to Johnny Damon before he signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Yankees." -- 11.25.06, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
