J.D. Drew's Alligator Story

I have a theory that J.D. Drew is actually the most interesting player in baseball. Only, we'll never know for certain, because he rarely talks, practically never divulges much information and seemingly is incapable of expressing emotion.

But then, every once in a while, he'll offer a quick glimpse into the world of J.D. Drew. Like he did on Tuesday, when he told Peter Abraham about his alligator "fishing."

Drew said he was in a boat with his son once when they hooked an alligator with a fishing lure. He had his son hold the pole and took position to try and leap on the alligator.

↵

"I figured I could get him myself," he said. "He was about five or six feet."

↵

"With your bare hands?" I asked.

↵

J.D. gave me his best "no, you stupid city boy" look.

↵

"I had a knife," he said.

↵

But the line snapped and the gator got away. J.D. missed his chance.

What else are you hiding behind that emotionless face, J.D.?
