Carl Crawford Relieved To Get Out Of Boston

Associated Press
Carl Crawford showed up for the first time to Dodger Stadium since the Nick Punto Trade. His interview with the LA media (and we use that term advisedly) was filled with excuses and lost opportunities. He said he wished he had not succumbed to the "pressure" of performing and listened to his doctors about the need for Tommy John surgery. He seemed to blame the fans and media in Boston for his urge to please and justify his ridiculous contract. In any event, he's gone. And both Crawford and the Red Sox are better off for it.
