J.D.'s Muenster Jack Melts Away His Regular-Season Blues

So he dumped us for the Red Sox and $70 million. So he was a "high-priced bust" during the regular season. Don't feel sorry for J.D. Drew—we never did—because with one monster jack, he's become the latest former-Dodger-turned-Boston-hero, following in the steps of Dave Roberts.

The former-Red-Sox-star-turned-Dodger-goat line starts with Bill Mueller. (I'm giving Nomar a pass because of this and this.)

Meanwhile, Julio Lugo awaits his turn in the spotlight....

UPDATE:

Don't think Mueller misses the glory days? He threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway Park last night. Oh well, maybe the $4.5 million the Dodgers are paying him this year will ease the pain of not being on the Red Sox roster.

Who are the former Red Sox-turned Dodger heros?

Mmmm... 64 slices of Muenster Cheese.

So Drew finally earns a bit of his paycheck. I'm sure the Sox are thinking, "cheddar late than never"

JD Drew was never a true Dodger. It's not like he had blue running through his veins.

Gouda riddance.

And Pedro: Derek Lowe, perhaps?

Alex Cora said...

Hey what about me? Ok, so I don't play at all for the Red Sox, but I am still on the team! Why don't I get a label?

Steve Sax said...

AC: Exactly our point.

Pedro Guerrero said...

I said Dodger Hero ... not Dodger mediocre pitcher.

With all the cheese comments, I thought you might have meant hero sandwiches.
