BoSox getting 2nd opinion on Drew physical results

And the J.D. Drew saga continues...

Drew is scheduled to have a second opinion Monday on a shoulder issue that came up in Drew's first exam, a source told The Globe.

The newspaper reported that it isn't known if the issue could void Drew's deal with the Red Sox. Boston reached a preliminary agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract with Drew at the winter meetings.

The shoulder issue could cause the Red Sox to shorten the lenth of the agreement, or replace some guarantees with incentives, The Globe reported.

Again, given the widespread speculation of certain shenanigans relating to Drew's decision to opt out of his contract with the Dodgers, and almost immediately dive into intense negotiations with the BoSox with hardly a glance at any other team, you have to think that both parties are going to be reluctant to walk away from the deal.

But still...depending on what the exam on Monday reveals, things could get a little ugly...
