Stephen Drew is a junior shortstop at Florida State University with a poker face and a jackpot worth of ability. He might be the No. 1 pick in Monday's Major League Baseball draft. But before the San Diego Padres lay out seven figures for a stake in Drew's future, they better resolve a question or two.

The consensus in the scouting community is that Stephen lacks emotional fire and will sit out rather than play if all his body parts aren't in perfect working order. If that rap sheet sounds familiar, it's because the same knocks apply to his older brother, Atlanta Braves right fielder J.D. Drew.
