Apologies to Stephen Drew

Apologies to Stephen Drew,

I hardly knew ya

I wanted to bench or perhaps platoon ya

But you were hitting .202

 

You had a brother J.D. Drew

Toiled five years on the Boston crew

Except for April, May and June

When his back was out of tune

Occasionally he could be spry

But that was only in July

Or when the stars aligned just right.

 

I figured it was only deja vu

When you went down like brother Drew

Your active days in spring were few.

The coming of Iglesias I  knew

Portended ill for the likes of you

So I dismissed another Drew.

 

The Red Sox had a vision true

Of a healthy Stephen Drew

And hitting seventh, who knew

Your timely swings would save this crew

When hitters five and six were overdue.

 

You could hit with power, too

In August saved the Beantown crew

With timely homers, not a few

And flashed a glove with ground ball glue

A shortstop with a swing, it’s true!

 

I regret remarks undue

Of the second coming of J. D. Drew

Of unfair comparisons with Iglesias, too

Of thinking a shortstop could never brew

What the so-called sluggers had failed to do.

For remarks that made you deja vu

I apologize, Stephen Drew
