JD Drew warms up before a game against the Baltimore Orioles.
2011 season has not been the most remarkable for Red Sox outfielder JD
Drew. Just three years after being elected an All-Star in his second
season with Boston (2008), Drew has hit a new kind of low, even for him.
management and lasting Drew believers can continue to sugar-coat this
guy's fading talent and justify the $70 million deal he signed in

Adrian Gonzalez was traded to the Red Sox, the first feeling that came
over hometown fans was happiness. Because for two years, Theo Epstein
& Co. have flirted with Epstein protégé Jed Hoyer, executive VP and
general manager of the San Diego Padres, regarding the availability of a
guy Epstein has coveted since before the 2004 season.

brand-new derby format.Each
league will have one captain -- last year's champion, Ortiz, for the AL
and Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder, the 2009 Home Run Derby
champion for the NL.
At just $3, there’s no doubt that frozen lemonde (as they call it) is the best buy at Fenway. Not to mention that it’s not exactly something you can sneak in in your shorts. I like to stick one in my pants for a few minutes, cool off, then crush it like a python. Pun intended, but I’m pretty sure that’s not a pun.

Something about this just doesn’t look right.
That Youkilis home run was just about the most spectacular thing I’ve seen out here in two seasons. Plus I swear a cool breeze blew through as soon as his heater cleared the Green Monster.
This super cool trick toy cam shot hardly does justice to the absolute outrage brewing in this ballpark right now.
In the past two weeks, there have been a lot less tickets on the street. I just scored something decent at a good price, but there’s something fishy going on here. Has Ace Tixx tigtened the noose? Perhaps an investigation is in order.
For the first time ever, I understand why most sane people despise soccer fans. At the Bolocco near Fenway Park - five minutes into the Sox game - and these geeks and assorted international students are watching the USA women’s match. I’m more confused than anything else, really.
