Ellsbury/Crawford...Never a sense of urgency.
posted at 7/5/2012 12:02 PM EDTI see where Ellsbury and Crawford are playing in the minors. As the Sox fall further and further behind in the standings, I have to wonder, why aren't they playing in Boston right now? I know this is an old school mentatlity, but aren't these guys at 80% worth more to the Sox right now? I am amazed how long it takes the modern player to rehab and injury, and it never seems like they stay on the field once they return. Ellsbury's injury had a 6-8 week timetable when it happened. We must be going on 13 or 14 weeks by this time. I just don't get it. I understand protecting your investment, but it seems Boston (and really every team) really overdoes it.
