• Stephen Drew & Kendrys Morales

    Posted by on February 25th, 2014 · Comments (4)

    Are they going to sit the first half of the season? See:

    Scott Boras, agent for free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) and SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), said both players are willing to wait until after the draft to sign with a team since there would not be any draft compensation linked to them.

    I wonder if they would be willing to play for some Indy team, until June, just to stay in shape and showcase themselves?

      For the life of me, I can’t understand why the Yankees don’t sign Drew… Are they waiting for the Rockies to “salary-dump” Tulo into their laps? I still think it’s a better than even shot that they sign Drew, and depending on what they think about the “Arms of Spring”, Santana is > (say) 25% to wind-up in the Bronx….

      @ KPOcala:
      Drew is probably holding out for a “reasonable” offer. Boras messed up, miscalculated the market. It happens.

      @ KPOcala:
      I agree. I’d grab him in a heartbeat if they could get a N. Cruz type of deal. Even 2 years.

      And, what, create a blockage for Cito Culver’s ascension to the major leagues?
