Card of the Day: 12/3/15

2000 Upper Deck MVP #55 J.D. Drew

     Drew played 11 seasons in the Major Leagues and 2001 was his best as a Cardinal and a Major League ballplayer. During that season, J.D. batted .323 with 27 home runs, 73 runs batted in, and 80 runs scored. He even posted a .974 fielding percentage, but was overshadowed by a rookie named Albert Pujols who finished 4th in MVP voting that year. Only two other Cardinals players cracked the top 24 in MVP voting that year. Can you guess who they were? Nope. It wasn't McGwire or Edmonds, but a couple of pitchers named Morris and Kline.
