Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times reports that Carl Crawford’s agents are sending iPads with pro-Crawford videos, preloaded, all the better to covet their client with. A couple of thoughts:
1. If there’s a team that can’t adequately assess Carl Crawford’s abilities without the aid of a pre-loaded iPad, they’re so dim that Crawford’s agents should have saved the $500 and just sent the magic beans; and
2. I hope that Crawford’s people also pre-loaded the NBC Sports Talk app, so that the teams can stay up-to-the-minute on all of the news and rumors we dish out here at HardballTalk, thereby keeping them one step ahead of the competition! Versions for the iPhone and Droid should be coming soon too!
(Too subtle? No? Good. I didn’t want my covert promotional item to be lost in nuance)
