Boston Red Sox owner John Henry intends to apologize to outfielder Carl Crawford on Saturday for publicly saying that he was against his signing.
Henry told 98.5 The Sports Hub in October that he wasn't enamored with the decision to offer Crawford a seven-year, $142 million contract.
"In fact, anyone involved in the process, anybody involved in upper management with the Red Sox would tell you that I personally opposed (the Crawford signing)," Henry said at the time. "Why? Because we had plenty of left-handed hitting. I don't have to go into why. I'll just tell you that at the time, I opposed the deal."
Fast forward back to the present, Henry admitted his words were wrong.
"I should have never made those comments," he said. "It was an off-the-cuff remark that I shouldn't have made, so when I see him I'm going to apologize to him for it."
Crawford admitted earlier this week that Henry's words bothered him.
