Drew vs. Sexson
Excuse me while I hop back on the “Sexson contract bad!” soapbox.
ESPN is reporting that the Dodgers have agreed to a deal with JD Drew worth $55M over 5 years. If you recall, the M’s signed Richie Sexson to a deal worth $50M over 4 years.
Not only is Drew a better hitter, he plays a more important position. He’s also left-handed, which this team needs desperately.
I hear some of you out there screaming, “But he’s so injury prone!” and yeah, maybe he is. I’ll bet you his shoulder doesn’t fall off, though, which might be more than we can say for Sexson.
