5 year deal. I hope he can stay healthy.


I seen this scroll at the bottom of ESPN, by the way.

The Los Angeles Dodgers quickly moved on in the hours after they withdrew from the proposed three-team Randy Johnson trade, agreeing in principle with free-agent outfielder J.D. Drew on a five-year, $55 million contract.And a "WAH-WAH!!!" to the Flubs! :tongue: It's pretty much Beltran or bust for them now.

If he's healthy he'll be worth every cent.

The problem is he's never played a full season. Last year was his career high at 145, which if he can play that many every year, he'd still be worth it, but I don't put too much stock in him playing that much. I can only assume that this contract has incentives that kick in when he plays a certain amount of games. If not, the Dodgers overpaid

The Flubs will probably be out of the running for Beltran now. They said they can't even attempt to sign Beltran without trading Sosa. With Drew getting this much money, imagine how much Beltran is going to get. They may actually have to take a flier on Maggs.

He's probably a better health bet than Sexson

He is. There's no doubt in my mind that Drew could hit at least .300 next season. I actually think that the spacious dimensions of Dodger Stadium could help him, given that he's a line-drive hitter. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him lead the league in doubles.

Risky move. He's going to earn A LOT of money while sitting on the DL. If for some miracle he's able to stay healthy, he'll put up nice numbers.
