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.’€

If you read the article, it turns out Butterfield is talking about Rob Ford.

The coward Rob Ford?

So, there were only 13 players who received a qualifying offer this off-season:

Robinson Cano
Hiroki Kuroda
Curtis Granderson
Jacoby Ellsbury
Stephen Drew
Mike Napoli
Shin-Soo Choo
Carlos Beltran
Nelson Cruz
Ervin Santana
Ubaldo Jimenez
Kendrys Morales
Brian McCann

All 13 rejected the offer. What does this say about the system? Or the teams' management? Of the 13, probably only three are thinking the should've taken it, right? Drew, Morales, and Cruz.

Santana hasn't signed yet, but I find it hard to believe somebody wouldn't give him, say, a 3 yr, $40m deal, right?
