Found August 23, 2013 on FenwayNation:
Pardon us for taking what Carl Crawford says in 2013 with a huge grain of salt. He had his chance to back up his words with performance during his year-and-a-half stay in Boston (which he continues to call a "bad experience"). Now, he's Mr. Macho (as much as anyone can be macho in La-La Land). Crawford told the Los Angeles Times that in the upcoming series with The Carmine Hose, "I want to win all three games. Bad." Really? Well, all we have to say is: Advantage Boston.

Is Carl Crawford Justified For Whining About His Time As A Red Sox?

Red Sox-Dodgers Series Should (Finally) Allow Carl Crawford to Move On, Stop Complaining About Boston

The facts about Carl Crawford‘s time in Boston are undeniable.

Carl Crawford Wants to Get 1,348,291 Hits During This Series Vs. Boston

Not actually, but he did say all the things you’re supposed to say before a heavily-hyped match-up between two teams that could very well find themselves in the World Series come October. Like how he wants to beat Boston in all three games of this series “bad.” And how his time playing in Boston was just “a bad experience.” Hey, I wouldn’t mind a $142 bad experience...

JP Crawford, Image- Jay Floyd Last week, this year’s top Phillies draft pick shortstop J.P. Crawford was promoted two levels, from the Gulf Coast League to the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws.

Report: Red Sox, Marlins Discussed Carl Crawford-for-Hanley Ramirez Swap During 2012 Season

Carl Crawford and Hanley Ramirez now share a clubhouse in Los Angeles. But there reportedly was a point last season when they almost traded places on the East Coast.

The potential swap never gained traction, though, and...

Is Jacoby Ellsbury another Carl Crawford waiting to happen?

If the Red Sox sign Ellsbury long-term would they regret it like they did the Crawford contract?

One of the most anticipated series of the year for the Boston Red Sox has finally approached on the calendar with trip to Dodger Stadium to face the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend.
