If you think the Rangers beat writers can’t let things go, get a load of Carl Crawford talking to Paul White of USA Today about the sadz he had in Boston:
“I don’t think I smiled in two years,” the Dodgers outfielder tells USA TODAY Sports of his time on a troubled team in Boston. “I was just frowning, I started growing grey hairs on my face from the stress and everything for two years straight”
As the pic to the right suggests, he’s not being totally honest here. He was smiling pretty damn big when the Red Sox gave him that nine-figure deal.
Anyway, I’m picturing a musical montage of sad Crawford set to “Don’t Give Up” by Peter Gabriel or something. I’m also picturing a room full of all the people on the planet who have any real sympathy for Carl Crawford’s ordeal in Boston. Pretty small room. This is hanging high on the back wall:
Sure, it sucks that he got hurt and stuff, but really Carl, your trials and tribulations were bearable I reckon.
