08:15 AM ET 12.18 | Yes, they're brothers and left-handed hitters, but J.D. Drew is quick to point out there are significant differences between himself and Stephen. The younger Drew's personality should fit in the Red Sox clubhouse. Whereas his brother was sneaky funny but mostly quiet and introverted, Stephen is more outgoing and lively, according to J.D. "Stephen's the youngest of three boys," he said. "He's kind of a free spirit. He's got a little bit of ADD in him. We kind of laugh about it. You tell him something, he gets so excited and amped up, and the next thing you know he's talking about something completely different. 'We were just talking about fishing. Why are you talking about skiing in Alaska?' People are drawn to Stephen."

That's because they don't have any faith in Julio Iglesias's ability to hit major league pitching.

Can't agree, Toad.
MLB shortstops are going at the price the Sox paid, and for more years and dollars if they have more credentials than Drew.
He's anothere "bounce-back" candidate, after a poor year following a serious injury.We'll see if he can hit, but in the meantime he's insurance since Iglesias has not shown he can hit MLB pitching.
They won't say it , but the next couple of years are Bridge Years until the farm system begins producing the next generation of Red Sox winners (at least we all hope so).
The two remaining off-season issues are: Is Ellsbury trade-bait, and if so, for what position/player? I"d like to see another strong young Triple A pitcher.
