J.D. and Julio down by the ballyard

So, apparently, there's this J.D. Drew guy on the Red Sox team? I guess he must be a new acquisition, as I don't remember seeing him round before. But if he's going to have career-high seven-RBI nights, maybe we can persuade him to play more often.

I don't know - maybe he was due. Maybe the J.D. Drew we'd been seeing was some under-performing clone playing whilst the real J.D. Drew was on a long vacation in Aruba. Maybe he just didn't want to suck horribly in front his little brother. Whatever the reason, I'd like to say that we like this J.D. Drew and we'd be delighted to see him stick around for a while.

Note to Julio Lugo: We also like the whole 'leadoff home runs and heads-up rally-killing plays at second base' thing you had going last night. Keep it up.
