Sits Crawford on "four-day plan:"
Carl Crawford's injury was a big a concern, but apparently it was also confusing. Valentine told reporters that the Red Sox medical staff told him to sit Crawford every four days, a plan Valentine dubbed the "four-day plan". Great, except that Sox general manager Ben Cherington said no such plan existed. “We want to make the off days count, make sense and come at the right time,” Cherington said. “I think we’d prefer not to put a specific number of days on it." Crawford was eventually shut down for the year and traded to the Dodgers.
