The Return of J.D. Drew

Postby nsulham » Wed Jun 18, 2008 1:30 pm

Don't look now but the player everyone loves to hate is absolutely raking. Just hit his 13th and is now up to 42 RBI with a .300+ average. It only took a year, and an injury to Ortiz, but it looks like the guy is locked in right now. Yes he's injury-prone but he's making a strong case to hit in the 5 hole if Ortiz comes back. It's not completely ridiculous to think he can go 30-100-.300. Always had the talent. If he's still available in your league jump on him.

He is such a good hitter. I agree he will put up good numbers and I think he will stay healthy. However, he is not available in my leagues.

Yeah baby! I've been waiting for his resurrection.
He had a few nancified injuries early in the year that made me think he had lost the plot and didn't want to play, but Tito giving him a little more responsibility has done wonders for his confidence.
Looks like good managing Tito to me ;-D

He has been long gone for a while in my league. If he can keep it up when Ortiz gets back 8-o 8-o ...

JD Drew this year reminds me of Mike Lowell from last year.

yeah I can't beleive I had to drop him. My team became plagued with injuries early on in the easy and I chose to keep Nick Swisher over him. Oops.

I can't believe phillies fans still boo him. I think it is having the adverse effect to say the least. Although as I have him on my team, if the phils are going to lose, let them get waxed and have him go buck. Mixed emotions and a half.
