Don't get caught up in the Elvis Andrus "speed" thing. While he will be a good player, he's not Stephen Drew. Last year was a good indicator that while he is a great fielder, I don't see him being more than a .300 hitter @ best with 30 steals.
Drew is in a lineup that is protecting him well this year. Bloomquist is off to a torid start and Young and Upton are hitting well. Drew is in the 4th spot, and as long as he keeps on hitting, Gibson will keep him there.
Hold your stance on this one. Don't get Elvis. His OBP freaks me out, but not in a good way.
