Crawford: I Was Never 'Comfortable' In Boston

Let's all shed a $142 million tear for Carl Crawford, shall we? According to's Rob Bradford, Crawford was never "comfortable" in Carmine Hose, citing a litany of indignities that apparently made it hell to be in the Hub. Said Crawford of Boston, "That place is going to be the same forever and I don't want no part of it." Hey, the feeling's mutual, pal. Crawford went on, "I try and put that as far behind me as I can. I would like to feel like that, but it still feels fresh at times. Just because it was one of the toughest times of my life. That's a scar that I think will never go away." We'd say there was a little 'scar tissue' in the NOG's wallet given Crawford's pathetic performance in his time here. Crawford cites his lack of "research" for his impulsive signing with the Red Sox, "I definitely wouldn't have went to the highest bidder. If I could have done it over again I would have gone into more detail into everything. I didn't do any research about nothing. I didn't know much about Boston, only when I played there. If I went into a little more depth as to what I was getting myself into things probably would have been a little different." By the way, as a Dodger, Crawford is hitting .268 with 10 HRs and 54 RBIs in 181 games. What a force!
