Drew Apparently Not Becoming A Metropolitan

(Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports)
New York Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson couldn't be much more direct about his team's interest in free-agent Stephen Drew,"We haven't ruled it out, but I think doing anything is unlikely." Since Ben Cherington has 'poo-pooed' any interest in re-signing Drew, and since the Mets are out, it looks like Scott Boras should call up Tweedle-Dumb and Teewdle-Dumber over in the Bronx. Otherwise, don't be surprised if Drew returns on a one-year 'pillow' deal in Boston—setting up a third-base battle between Xander Bogaerts and Will Middlebrooks.
