Apparently three big postseason moments in two years, having one of the best Junes in the history of the franchise and being the best overall right fielder in baseball when he was on the field last year just aren't enough to get J.D. Drew any respect in the Boston media:
Bay’s game is much like his personality – quiet and unassuming. And yet, when the season is over, more often than not he’s been good for 30 homers and 100 RBI throughout his career. The Sox also could bat J.D. Drew fifth to go lefty-righty, but Drew possesses nowhere near Bay’s power.
Bay is often underrated, as well, and he consistently compiles better counting numbers than Drew because he's generally healthier. But, honestly, guys.
