Patience needed with Drew, Hermida 

April, 22, 2010
From Ted Williams to Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Dwight Evans and Manny Ramirez, the Boston Red Sox have a long tradition of featuring some of the top outfield hitters in baseball.

As I type this, their options are Jeremy Hermida, Bill Hall, Darnell McDonald and J.D. Drew. Hmm, not exactly in the same class.

However, a few of the members in the current mishmash that makes up Fenway's not-so-finest do have varying degrees of value for fantasy leaguers, and shouldn't simply be glossed over. It's going to be a few weeks, at least, until we see Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron return to their regular duties from DL stints, so this is what we have to work with, and we might as well deal with it.
