oh well thats perfectly sound reasoning. drew and his agent knew how good he could be and didn't wanna get roped into playing for a what was at the time, a pretty shitty team. i don't blame him. trying to pelt him with batteries is pretty classless and definitely turned me against the phillies and their fans from that day on.
not even trying to be a one upper or anything, i swear in the 15 years i have followed yankees baseball there has never been an incident where fans threw things onto the field in an attempt to hurt an opposing player.
