Overrated Sox: Drew and Beckett

Shanan H.Analyst IAugust 26, 2009

Red Sox fans, you've got to admit it:  Josh Beckett and J.D. Drew are among the most overrated players in the league.  Just admit it.

Yes, Josh Beckett has won 20 games, with a 3.27 ERA.  Well, that's not bad.

Besides that one good season, lets look at two others:

2006, his first year:

In 2008, Mike "Moose" Mussina had 20 wins to 9 losses, with a 3.37 ERA.

The Seattle Mariners:

Pual Maholm was batter than Beckett in 2008, and Zach Duke was better in 2006.

Devil Rays in 2006:  Scott Kazmir, anyone?

he 33 year old is batting .260 with a mere 16 home runs and just 50 RBI.  Sounds more like the National's five hitter than the Red Sox five hitter.  Speaking of the Nationals and there five hitter, lets see how Josh Willinghan is doing:

If you aren't convinced by now, you are really stupid and ignorant.  And you can't go through life like that, unless it's in politics.  (Dan Quale, George Bush's and most recently Sarah Palin and Joe Lieberman tought us that!)
