The Red Sox aren't only selling their best players of the season, but also their worst. Having already parted ways with pitchers Jon Lester, John Lackey, and Andrew Miller, as well as outfielder Jonny Gomes, the Sox struck again before the deadline, trading away shortstop Stephen Drew to . . . the Yankees, according to multiple reports. That's right - after all that Drew drama, he's now in New York. The Red Sox will receive infielder Kelly Johnson in the trade. The Red Sox gave Drew the qualifying offer over the offseason, which took interest away from opposing teams not wanting to lose a draft pick over signing Drew.
