Default Red Sox Sign Stephen Drew

It's certainly shaping up to be another interesting year in Boston.


Go Sox!!!

The owner said they were going to spend money and they are by the boatload.

Victorino at 3/39, now Drew for 1/9.5. If this were 2008 the Red Sox would be dangerous.

Dempster and Uehara are the only two good pickups in my opinion out the 5 or 6 guys they've signed.

They'll be battling The O's for fourth place.

Apparently hitting .238 and missing 160 games over the past 2 years is worth $9.5 Million?

This is why I think the megadeals like the ones that the Sawx/Dodgers and Marlins/Jays pulled off are bad for baseball- it continues to widen the gap between the Boston's and, say, San Diego's of the baseball world so asshat owners and GMs like Henry can continue to do this with zero consequence.
