Crawford has wrist surgery, may miss Opening Day

Posted on: January 17, 2012 3:57 pm
 
Carl Crawford underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told reporters today (via Rob Bradford of WEEI.com). Cherington said that while Crawford could miss the start of the season, the Red Sox haven't ruled out the possibility that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

According to Cherington, Crawford began experiencing soreness in the wrist when he increased his hitting activity within the last few weeks.

Crawford had a terrible first season with the Red Sox, after signing a seven-year, $142 million contract as a free agent.

Listen things happen, Carl Crawford had a terrible first year no question about it, he is also paid waay too much but at the time that was the price to get him.  Will he ever be as good or even better than when he was with the Rays...Probably not but let's give this guy a shot.  Yes he is injured now but players get hurt and he will heal up.  I just think he is being mis-used in Left Field.  Put him in right where he can use his speed more.  That way whoever else the "throw-in" the red sox would have put in right field get switched to left.

What a stupid headline/story.  Opening Day is months away, how is he not going to be healed up from the surgery by then?  I'm guessing he also had surgery on his vagina as well if they think he will not be able to play baseball 4 months from now.

What a waste of a contract that is.  The guy is such an underachiever.  Pathetic
