Unthinkable Question About JD Drew

Postby StlSluggers » Tue Aug 15, 2006 6:11 pm

I was just noticing that all of Drew's numbers - Avg, OBP, SLG, ISO - are all at their lowest points in 4 years. All of this while Drew's playing more than he usually does. This begs the question...

...and I never thought I'd ask this of him, but...

...man, I can hardly bring myself to type the words, but I have to, so...

...you don't suppose Drew's playing hurt do you?

Please don't stone me.

Maybe with hurt feelings, but if he had a hangnail, he'd be on the DL.

:-D

Here is a better question ..
If the JD Drew went on the DL while in the forest, would anybody know?

It's possible. There have been times this season where he left the game at odd times and some days where he was removed from the lineup before the game started. He is paid way too much to not play everyday against both righties and lefties, so I think it's a fair assumption that he could be fighing something.

If he is injured, its not affecting him in the field or on the base pads. He has looked good in both of those departments all season long, but it could be affecting his swing. His average over the last couple of months has me concerned as an owner of him.

I just recently dumped him for Quentin. The declining numbers concerned me and I just can't afford to rely on him during the playoff push.

Guys, are you kidding me? He's obviously tired. He's played in about 100 games this year!!! 100! He's obviously almost completely out of gas, but how could he not be? He's about 75 games over his season average.

With the Dodgers in the playoff push it's possible that they'd ask him to do so. Of course the hurt couldn't be anything remotely serious. Something like him playing the team player by pushing through that stubbed toe and getting out on that field.
