The Red Sox’ offer surprised Carl Crawford

Carl Crawford recalls hearing about the Red Sox’ offer from his agent last month:

It was the night of Dec. 8, and Crawford was driving along one of Houston’s many freeways when he took a call from agent Brian Peters, who had received lucrative offers from both the Red Sox and the Angels and wanted to know where the All-Star left fielder preferred to play … “He told me the dollar amount,” Crawford said, “and I almost got into a wreck on the freeway.”

Call me crazy, but something tells me that the Red Sox could have bid a bit lower and still gotten Crawford.
