The Boston Red Sox are interested in keeping a few pieces of their World Series puzzle in hopes of another championship run. They brought back a couple, but also lost a couple.
That’s just how things work in the world of sports. Not everybody is guaranteed to come back, or interested as their stock could be through the roof depending on their performance that year.
Now when it comes to infielder Stephen Drew, his bat was brought back to life after struggling to hit over one five home runs since he was moved from the Diamondbacks to the Athletics. This year he hit 13 home runs with 67 RBI’s with a batting line of .253/.333/.443 in what may be his only year with the Red Sox.
With Stephen testing the market, it could look like he’s waiting on the New York Yankees to extend him an offer. No idea why the Yankees would extend him an offer considering they have Derek Jeter and Brendon Ryan at shortstop.
Stephen Drew’s decision is awaiting some further Yankee clarity

The Boston Red Sox are interested in him returning, but I’m not quite sure how long they’ll wait. The New York Mets have also expressed some interest in the 30 year old infielder.
