Is this a contract year for Drew?

Is this a contract year for Drew?

I know it's sad that he might just be playing for money, but he's a FA and I'm thinking to pick him up if that's motivating him.

why does your source say StL?

Thanks,

I'm going to pick him up then...he's going to play his money hungry heart out this year...

If he doesn't get injured for the rest of the year, then you know he's playing just for the money

It's actually 1-year $4.2 Million deal. That site is normally right but it's updated infrequently. Drew got delt in December and renegotiated the contract.

everyone and his mother has known Drew to have the ability, it was always the health concerns. Well he has sorta kept himself healthy for now. For the sake of the Braves fans lets hope he can keep it up.

If this deal were done for the sake of the Braves fan, it sucked! I've never liked Drew from the begining of his career demanding so much money and not willing to play in Phil. And he's been nothing but an absoluted disappointment since because he cant stay healthy. Braves gave away a soild 5th starter and one of the top pitching prospects out there to get a guy for ONE year. Plus they took Marrero who was just a salary dump for Stl. Makes no sense at all to me. As a fan it doesnt matter if Drew has a good year. Braves werent looking at the big picture when they made this deal I dont believe.

He would have been booed out of Philly after the first year of being a wimp.

Well that doesn't mean too much though. PhillyFan would boo Mike Tyson for being a puss. They did boo Schmidt after all. :-t

Man the phillies boo Scott Rolen, and he's one of the classiest players in the game.
