08:14 AM ET 08.21 | Not long before A's shortstop Adam Rosales stepped to the plate during a Monday night at-bat, Oakland announced over the in-stadium speakers that Stephen Drew had been acquired. Moments later, Rosales popped out. This season A's shortstops are hitting an MLB-worst .187. Oakland had been actively trying to upgrade at the shortstop position. They finally got their man. ... How much of an upgrade Drew actually is remains a huge question. Drew, 29, is batting .069 (2 for 29) in his last nine games. He is batting .193 in 40 games this season after returning from a fractured ankle sustained on July 20, 2011. He missed a total of 137 games with the injury.

The only thing the A's upgraded was payroll.

I think Stephen Drew's biggest problem has always been that he's never shown the same dedication and passion for the game that his brother J.D. did.........
