Carl Crawford is friggin' nuts

First Adrian Belte, now Carl Crawford. I don’t understand ballplayers sometimes:
 

. . . even after seeing how bad it looked, and knowing how incredibly horrible it felt, when he was struck, well, there, by
an errant pickoff throw in Tuesday’s game against the Orioles, Crawford
insisted he has no plans to start wearing a protective cup when he
returns to the field, possibly Friday in Cleveland.

“I’m just not
going to wear a cup,” Crawford said. “I just don’t think that’s going to
happen again. It never happened in eight years, so I’m not going to
worry about letting that one little incident make me change the way I do
things. … If it happens again, then it just happens again.”

Hey, they’re his jewels so if he wants to gamble with them, more power to him.  And really, maybe there is a certain kind of genius logic to all of this.
