Spring Training Today: Crawford, Youkilis speak their minds

Our Spring Training Today video series kicks off today, and will continue each weekday through March 2 with a daily look at the top story lines emerging from Fort Myers as the Red Sox train for the 2012 season.

Today’s edition, hosted by Peter Abraham, focuses on the arrival of outfielder Carl Crawford and his candid responses to questions about how he took team owner John Henry’s comments last fall, when Henry admitted he was opposed to signing Crawford.

Third baseman Kevin Youkilis’s health and contract status are also covered, and the video includes excerpts from Youkilis’s press conference this morning.
