Let the Drew Drubbing Continue

I can't resist posting this link from Bill Simmons of ESPN, which carries a nice stretch of consecutive emails he received from ecstatic Dodger fans who are delighted to be done with JD Drew. (You need to go halfway down the link to find the Drew messages in Simmons' mailbag.) But look at Simmons' own response:

I haven't been this horrified by a big move from a Boston team since the Celtics traded for Vin Baker four summers ago. The Sox just signed someone who, by all accounts, plays without any semblance of passion or intensity. He's the exact type of player that Boston fans have always hated. We have a century-long track record of proving this point. That's the part I don't get. It's not like Theo is from France -- he's from freaking Brookline. He should have known. Arrrrrrrrrgh.

I also like the final email from Michael Rupp, quoting Bono's Band-Aid line, "Well, tonight thank god it's them, instead of you!" Dodger fans, do we know it's Christmas? I think we do.
