Looking Back On J.D. Drew's 5-Year Red Sox Career

Looking Back On J.D. Drew's 5-Year Red Sox Career

()J.D. Drew turns 42 years old today—just a few days younger than David Ortiz. Of course, Drew hasn't played an MLB game since September of 2011. But, on his birthday, it might be an opportune time to take a more objective look at Drew's five seasons in Carmine Hose. Things probably started off on the wrong foot—with the February 2007 signing of a 5-year, $70 million free-agent contract. Expectations were sky high. His first year in Boston produced a .270 average with just 11 HRs and 64 RBI—hardly $70 million territory. And yet, the Red Sox won the World Series that year—and Drew hit...

David Ortiz May Open Restaurant In Springfield, Mass.

(Shawn Costa Photo)During his appearance at a Springfield Thunderbirds hockey game, former Red Sox hero David Ortiz strongly hinted that he might be back in Pioneer Valley a lot in the future. The three-time World Series Champion stated that he might just open up an eatery in  Springfield. Said Papi, "They're building a new casino here, so we're talking about building a restaurant here. We're going to catch up and see how it goes down. But you might get to see (me) more often around here if that goes down." Needless to say the sell-out crowd went wild at the possibility.

With trade out of question, Miguel Cabrera at career crossroads in 2018

With trade out of question, Miguel Cabrera at career crossroads in 2018

Many feared that David Ortizs career was on the fritz after a rough 2009 season. Ortiz played seven more seasons for the Red Sox, getting 1,014 hits, including 224 home runs and posting an OPS of .945. A year ago, the idea sounded plausible.  Today, it sounds fanciful. Last November, an MLB.com report suggested the Houston Astros might target Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera. It didn't happen, of course. Instead, the Astros pulled off what might go down as the most important August trade in baseball history when they nabbed Tigers ace Justin...

2018 Off-Season Potential Trade Partner: the Boston Red Sox

2018 Off-Season Potential Trade Partner: the Boston Red Sox

Their bullpen needs arms. Our bullpen has them. After an quick exit from the postseason at the hands of the Astros, the Red Sox have already started to re-tool for next year. While the priority is obviously filling their managerial vacancy, the team has other issues to address: a big bat to replace the hole David Ortiz left in the lineup when he retired before the 2017 season (he’s a big man, it’s a big hole), a backup for the aging Pedroia, and a replacement for Mitch Moreland, who is a free agent after this year. The Red Sox also need to shore up their pitching. First, they need to...
