Why Does JD Drew Stink?

Postby marsrover21 » Thu Apr 09, 2009 4:35 pm

Every year I get so excited for JD Drew, and every year I am disappointed. Just now he almost killed a rally and is going 0-fer today. Will he continue to be stinky?

He doesn't stink, he just is not the guy that he is paid to be. I love his .400 OBP from last year for fantasy purposes though...guess it depends if BBs, OBP and OPS are stat categories in your league...

On my planet he has an .894 lifetime OPS, definitely not stinking. Things must be different on Mars. :-B

He's definitely an example of a player who is more valuable in fantasy than he is in real life though...

I love his draw a walk or strike out looking mentality in a situation where the BoSox have a man on third with one out and need a run for my fantasy team when I need a BB but not so much when I'm watching as a Boston fan...

In Forecaster, they said "$30 skills trapped in a body made of crackers". I wonder if the Bosox are catering to the fantasy market since they announce his days off in plenty of time to get him out of the lineup?
