Evil Empire Is Re-Setting Its Sights On Drew

Apparently, forking over a half-billion dollars this off-season isn't quite enough for the Steinbrenner Brood (Tweddle-Dumb and Tweedle-Dumber). Now they want to give Stephen Drew a multi-year deal to shore up the left-side of their pathetic infield. The party line is that Drew can play second base—and slide over to shortstop if (read: when) Derek Jeter breaks something else. Their third base option (assuming Eduardo Nunez is finally shipped off to oblivion) is the immortal Kelly Johnson—who hit .235 for Tampa last year. Supposedly, sources indicate the Red Sox have also offered a multi-year pact—although that would seem out of character for Ben Cherington. Stay tuned!
