#RedSox manager John Farrell on why Stephen Drew is staying in the lineup for Game 6 of the ALCS:
"I know there's been a lot calling for Stephen's head, seemingly. But this is a very good player and in these games, defense is a premium. When a defensive play hasn't been made and you give a team an extra out, as good as these two teams are you're likely going to pay for that.
"I'm not saying that we don't have good defenders otherwise. But Stephen's taking good swings. We all recognize the struggles that are there. But he shores up the middle of our infield so well that I'm certainly going to preserve that. Yes, Stephen will be in the lineup tomorrow."
