Stephen Drew Re-signs with Red Sox
For those wondering if the Mets might sign Stephen Drew to play shortstop, it ain’t happenin’ — the Boston Red Sox have re-signed Drew.
I imagine the recent spirited play and hot bat of Ruben Tejada prompted Drew to realize he had no option in Flushing, and rushed back to the Bosox. Or, maybe the world doesn’t revolve around the Mets, and instead, it had something to do with Will Middlebrooks‘ finger injury (as well as his slow start) — the Drew signing suggests that Xander Bogaerts will slide over the third base.
On the bright side, at least the Mets won’t lose their 3rd-round pick (85th overall) in the June draft — assuming, of course, they don’t run out and sign Kendrys Morales before then.
