Like the Red Sox I am intrigued at the potential of J.D. Drew. I simply love his swing and approach at the plate. Unfortunately, I am also concerned about how he’ll react when he gets eviscerated by the Boston writers and fans after missing most of a season due to injuries. Anyone who thinks this won’t happen based on the way Manny gets treated is deluding himself. Manny doesn’t miss as much time as Drew; Manny produces the gaudy Triple Crown stats fans love; Manny was a big part of the 2004 World Series Championship team; Manny is considered a lovable dufus by the fans. As a result, Manny gets away with his antics from the fans. J.D. is no Manny.
As much as I love Drew, this will not end well for Drew or the Sox.
