Carl Crawford treats Rays employees to lunch

Carl Crawford is so nice:

The four-time All-Star who agreed to a $142 million, seven-year deal with the Red Sox this month picked up the tab Wednesday for lunch at Tropicana Field, where about 150 Rays employees feasted on a barbecue meal the Gold Glove left fielder arranged to have delivered to the home of the AL East champions.

I think we’re about to see an arms race with “nice gestures by departing free agents to his former team and/or fans” taking the place of nuclear weapons. Lunch? Ha!  How about dinner with two drink tickets to each employee!  Oh yeah? I’ll see that and throw in a hot cocoa sampler pack for each person!

Oh wait, that’s right: that won’t happen because not everyone is as awesome as Carl Crawford is.  Never mind.
