Heading into Game 6 of the World Series, Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew was mired in a 4-for-50 postseason slump at the plate.
Drew had struck out 19 times.
While Drew probably heard the cries from fans critical as to why he was still in the lineup, he was actually unable to see them.
Apparently, Stephen Drew needs glasses.
According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, Drew paid a visit to the eye doctor before Wednesday night’s Game 6 World Series clincher. Drew was fitted for contact lenses and coincidentally began making contact. Drew went 2 for 4 and hit a key home run that stretched Boston’s lead to 4-0.
Of course Boston won the game and the Series and Stephen Drew saw it all. Clearly.
Classic story. Star infielder can’t see, goes the whole season without glasses, and goes 4-50 in the post season with 19 strikeouts. Then, he gets contact lenses before game 6 of The World Series, smokes a home run, and goes 2-4.
Where have I seen a story like this before? Oh yeah….
Wild Thing was a slouch before those world famous spectacles.
