    Sox regret signing Crawford. Guess the feeling is mutual...

    What a "Monday".  I bet he doesn't regret the 40+ million he stole from the organization.  A triple A player could have given the Sox the production he provided.  Good luck, in L.A. you little whiner.  Remember, all they need you to do is hit the cutoff man.

     



    We had a thread on this about two months ago. This attempt at creating a thread for conflict is lame. Crawford is old news. Go beat a dead horse elsewhere.

     

     




     

     

    Pot stirrer Pike

    trolling again.

    inflamming

    instigating.

     




    Let me get this straight;

    You slammed the OP.

    Then, you slammed Pike for slamming the OP.


    You don't see a problem here?

    Crawford is a small market guy. I doubt he will excel in LA either.

    I agree that Crawford wasn't a good fit in the Boston market, but L.A. & Boston are two totally different animals.  I don't think anyone would be surprised if he has a lot of success out there.  I actually expect it.

    Other than the size of the city and the TV contract, L.A. is small market vibe.  no one cares about baseball.  Dodger Stadium is the best place to take a nap in southern california.  And, whats more, the Dodgers actually could make use of Carl Crawford.  Sox had absolutely no plan for him or need for him or any way to mask his weaknesses.  He fits the Dodgers much better.  Assuming he can stay healthy, I would expect him to be pretty dynamic out here.

    Gee, it is really terribble when someone signs you to more then anyone else was willing to. I am not sure why he would say this, except that he is angry for some reason.

    I am glad he is gone but that term used to describe him is out of line.



    Jackbu.  To be fair to Carl, his 'regrets', based on his comments, seem mostly to be with himself.  Other than what he referred to as the 'toxic culture' (not many would disagree with this over the past two years), he basically admitted that he did not have what it takes to play in Boston.  he said, “From the outside, you watch guys playing over there and you think you can go and play.  But you realize, once you get there, it’s a little tougher than you expected.”  So, he basically admitted and then went on to expand on how he didnt have the mental stuff to deal with Boston.  He inferred that going for the big money in this case might have been a mistake.  He didn't really put it on the Red Sox.

    I think many players, past and present, may have regretted basing their decisions on just the money, space. Mike Lowell was offered a bigger/longer deal from the Phillies before re-signing with Boston. He said he wasn't one of those players who  based his decision on money, as much as happiness. Cliff Lee was another, who passed on bigger offers from the NYY and Rangers, and took less to return to the Phillies. More players should look at the whole picture. Sometimes, less is more.

    Crawford's contract was ridiculous and he never would have lived up to it even if he reverted to his career norms of around a .300 BA and 15 home runs every year. He seems like a nice enough guy...just was never a fit here. I hope all goes well for him this year and in the future.

    You whine worse than Carl.



    Crawford should probably be quiet until he can actually stay in the lineup and help another club.  Another huge lapse in judgement by Theo

    Re: Crawford Regrets Signing With Sox

    I am not sure what Carl really expected.

     

     

    1.  He claimed to have loved signing on here where baseball fans really loved the game and showed it in attendance and attitude.  The few fans and their cow bells of Tampa Bay may have been fine ... but it wasn't the same as baseball at Fenway.  He claimed he knew the intensity level was what he was looking forward to ...

     

    2.  He was truly shocked to have gotten such a contract ... even his agent was wonderstruck.  Where is the room for bitterness here?

     

    3.  Not from Carl's point of view but mine, I knew and stated early on that I hoped he didn't start slowly, because some of our finest fans would ride him without mercy.  Sadly, I was right.  He started poorly and even got injured and that was Katy bar the door.

     

    4.  LA is so laid back when it comes to lifestyle and baseball success that he may indeed find some room to succeed.  But I don't think it will be as easy as some think.  The huge investment the new owners have made puts pressure on the whole team to be successful.  They not only have to renew Dodger Blue and build a contending team but they have to fight the rally monkey and the new out priced Angels for LA hearts.  They still know how to boo in LA....
