Stephen Drew (heating up)

Postby High Heater » Sun Apr 13, 2008 7:49 pm

through 42 AB's Drew's now at .317 with 2hr 1sb on the year hitting low in the order. he's looked really good and is picking up where he left off late last year and playoffs. just something to think about if anyone belives in him and wants to pick him up cheap before its too late. ;-D

No reason not to be excited about him. He has a great swing like his brother, but seems more durabe ... if only he could bat higher in that line-up

I waited really late in my draft and i ended up going with drew as my starter... I wanted him to be my backup but those were the cards i was dealt.

I'm really hoping he can deliver a strong season. So far so good.

I picked him up because Carlos Guillen is hurt. I hope he can come through during his absence. :/

I would like Drew to hit higher in the order but that lineup is so stacked that he's stuck in the 7/8 hole.

He bat 6th yesterday. I'd like to see him in the 2-hole, or O-Dogg slid to 2, Upton 3, and Drew 5.

I have Young as my starter and Drew on my bench. I'm hoping to switch that order sometime this season, so bring it on Mr. Drew.

CBY wasn't playing so the lineup was tweaked. Drew's only real shot at moving up is switching spots with Hudson but that probably won't happen. CBY, Upton, and Reynolds have all been ridiculous, Byrnes isn't going anywhere, and I doubt Conor Jackson gets moved down.

at this point Conor Jackson does not belong higher in the order then Drew. Drew has the better bat and plus power unlike Conor imo.

i agree Odawg would need to move and it would be ideal to put drew in the two hole but it's unlikely unless Odawg slumps. they really should put Drew ahead of Jackson though.

i'd like to see this lineup:

CBY
Drew
Upton
Reynolds
Byrnes
Odawg
Jackson
Snyder

I would prefer to place Drew in the 5-hole. Having the 1-2 guys capable of 30+ SB speed is a plus followed by Upton and Reynolds in the 3-hole and cleanup respectively.
