Carl Crawford Sits Out With Stiff Left Forearm

Déjà Vu All Over Again
UPDATE: Crawford likely to miss Opening Day
We can't honestly say this news is too surprising, but Carl Crawford is sidelined with a stiff left forearm. The Dodger outfielder—who was sent to Chavez Ravine in The Great Punto Deal—may have "thrown too much" in his recovery from Tommy John surgery according to manager Don Mattingly. Said Carl, "It flared up on me. We're just being careful. I don't think it's crazy, just everybody is being very careful. From what I'm hearing, this stuff happens and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again.We just have to stay on top of it. I don't look at it as a major setback. If I had to, I could do the things I'd have to do." The more things change, the more they stay the same.
