An Iconic Fantasy Baseball Community

As an amateur Stephen Drew was once called “the perfect combination of baseball tools and baseball skills” by a professional scout. While he has certainly been a solid major league contributor I think it’s pretty safe to say he hasn’t quite lived up to expectations nor had that “breakout” season just yet. This is good news for those of us looking for a potential stud SS to speculate on in re-draft and even keeper leagues. Drew puts over 40% of his balls in play into the air which, when coupled with his natural swing and bat speed, bodes well for a power breakout. Unbeknownst to most Drew has more triples than anyone else in the NL over the last 2 seasons. As you may or may not know triples are more of a speed indicator than power and as such there could be some hidden SB skills hiding in Drew’s arsenal if he gets the opportunity to run. Best case scenario for a Drew breakout would be .300, 30 HR, 20 SB.

I'd be tempted to put him into the no-brainer category too. I really doubt a player of his caliber will be there for your 2nd pick....
