What’s the refund policy on Stephen Drew? - Eric Wilbur’s Sports Blog - Boston.com

It’s only money but I still don’t see a good reason for the Sox to sign Drew. Moving Bogaerts is not a good long-term decision. The Sox, as Holt is showing, have other options at third base.

red sox - First move for Red Sox should be to revisit Stephen Drew - WEEI | Rob Bradford

No! No! No! Leave Bogaerts where he is. Let Drew sign a long-term deal with another team. Fill in at third as best they can.

It’s time.

The Red Sox should make their move on Stephen Drew (whatever that move might be).

It might not work out, but it will be worth a try. At this point, they need to try something.

Full Count » Sources: Red Sox not currently engaged in Stephen Drew market

‘€œHe’€™s got great body control, he’€™s a great athlete,” said Butterfield. “The main thing that we’€™ve been concentrating on is his feet. I think with all young shortstops it just becomes a matter of time before they know where to put those feet down. He’€™s getting there. He’€™s still not there completely, and he’€™d be the first one to tell you that. But extremely athletic. And when he does it right with his feet, you see the explosion, the body control, and a guy that’€™s going to be able to be creative, gets the ball in the air quickly and with some arm strength. He’€™s going to be a guy that we’€™re really looking forward to seeing, and I can’€™t wait to see some reps here in spring training.’€
