- For the last year or three, Crawford has seemingly always been mentioned as “destined” to be on the Yankees. Except that was before the development and emergence of Brett Gardner.
- I have all the respect in the world for Crawford for all he brings to the game, but if Heyman’s estimates are right, there’s no way the Yanks throw a nine digit offer at another outfielder… even if they dumped Granderson.
- Recently there have been some grumblings and whispers about Crawford’s thin skin, particularly after he got caught by Greg Golson to end the game last week. If he’s feeling it in Tampa, he would have to do a lot to tune out the NY fans. Because we’re so kind and subtle and warm and reasonable, just ask Austin Kearns and the Big Puma (though, cheers could be heard yesterday, finally!).
- Like many, I can see him fitting in quite nicely in Anaheim playing for Scioscia.
