Drawn and Quartered

I jumped the gun back on December 6 thinking that the five-year, $70M deal with J.D. Drew was fait accompli. Instead, the outfielder will undergo a second physical tomorrow because of concerns over the condition of his shoulder.

Drew failing a physical is as shocking as Adam Savage hurting himself in the course of busting a myth.

Tony Massarotti of the Boston Herald broke the story yesterday and even the official MLB site is carrying the news, albeit in a sanitized manner.

The original deal may be adjusted in a number of ways, from shortening the term or reducing the total value to adding performance clauses. Considering Drew’s injury history, these are all things that should have informed the parameters of the first offer.

Sometimes in life you do get a do-over.


I think that were are all rather tongue-in-cheek regarding Drew's injury record -- it's well-known, just is the fact of Drew's and Scott Boras' greediness. I often wonder how clubs can make offers and preliminary deals before they know if the player is damaged goods.
