Nice First Impression by Drew

"People will just have to get to know me and my game," he said from his home in Hahira, Ga. "People think I don't care enough, which couldn't be farther from the truth. I care very deeply about the game and what ever team I've been on and how to help that team win games. I'm just quiet. I'm the type of person who keeps things inside. It's just the way I am.

I still say this is the best deal of the offseason. He's a better hitter and defender than any of the other FA's out there, and is severely underrated because of a lame impression.

I'll say it again, I always had a gut feeling Drew 's injury history was overblown. It became pretty damn clear to me when he left the Braves and all of a sudden there was talk of Drew "begging out of games" for little things. He played in 145 games that year.

Don't be shocked to see Drew hit .300/.400/.500 as a Sock.

"Tony made those comments and he knew that I was playing in terrible pain with a severe case of patellar tendinitis in my knee for three years," recalled Drew, who played for La Russa in St. Louis from 1998-2003. "I came back from the injury when I was 50 percent. It was a terrible injury. I felt I gave them everything I had.

That friggin WIMP.

Can't wait for the first "watch him break his fingernail at his press conference and be out for the season" joke. They always stay funny.
