Crawford Couldn't Quite Handle 'Toxic' Boston

Toxic? You Haven't Seen Toxic!
Don't shed a tear for Carl Crawford. He is the beneficiary of one of the most undeserved contract deals in baseball history. So, when he whines to his new media contingent in La-La land about how "toxic" things were in Boston, it's hard for us to commiserate. Crawford unburdened his soul to the LA Times and stated the following about his days in the Hub: "I knew with the struggles I was having, it would never get better for me. I just didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel. It puts you in kind of a depression stage. You just don't see a way out...Toughest two years of my career, by far. From the outside, you watch guys playing over there and you think you can go and play. But you realize, once you get there, it's a little tougher than you expected." Poor baby.
