J.D. Drew Contract Resolved

Finally!  Though the initial agreement came in late November, the Red Sox and J.D. Drew have finally settled the terms on their five-year, $70MM deal.

As expected, the Red Sox have some outs in case Drew’s shoulder becomes a problem.  Team doctors indicated that he could have shoulder issues three to five years from now, so the escape clauses are based on that assumption. 

Boston officially has a murderer’s row of .400 OBP/.500-.600 SLG guys in the middle of their lineup.  It will be a nasty stretch for any pitcher.
