ALLEN CRAIG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Allen Craig ‘Confident’ He’ll Overcome Struggles With Red Sox In 2015

Allen Craig was having a bad season with the St. Cardinals. It has only gotten worse with the Boston Red Sox.

The 2013 All-Star was hitting .217 with a .606 OPS...

Allen Craig’s Return Could Help Fix Boston Red Sox’s Biggest Deficiency

BOSTON — The Red Sox on Thursday added a serviceable plug to their leaky offense. Allen Craig, who suffered a foot injury Aug. 1 in his first game after being acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals, returned from the 15-day disabled list. While Craig won’t singlehandedly halt Boston’s season-long offensive malaise, the slugger’s return could go a long way toward fixing the...

Did the Boston Red Sox get damaged goods in Allen Craig?

If people were able to come to terms with the fact that the Boston Red Sox weren’t willing to pay Jon Lester, the general consensus was that the team got a good return for their deals at the deadline. One of the biggest pieces involved that day was Allen Craig, who came to town along with Joe Kelly in return for John Lackey. However, it has already become apparent that Craig has...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Outfielder edition

With the All-Star break quickly approaching, the St. Louis Cardinals’ trade rumors continue to swirl. At this point, it doesn’t even appear General Manager John Mozeliak has a game plan, but it willing to deal. Pitching being a weak point, the Cards could definitely add depth in the rotation or bullpen in order to stay in the hunt for the National League Central pennant, possibly...

Allen Craig is SO last year

That’s the general consensus, right? Allen Craig: has-been. Oscar Taveras: savior. Only, it’s not as obvious as it seems. But then it is. And then it isn’t again. It’s … complicated. Craig is down, that much is certain. But while some numbers are shockingly low, others are reasonable enough to defend. For example, he’s swinging at fewer pitches out of the strike zone...

Allen Craig might be St. Louis Cardinals’ best trade chip

Despite the fifth-best earned-run average in Major League Baseball at 3.28, the St. Louis Cardinals might need to target a pitcher at the trading deadline. And it might take one of their best hitters during the past three seasons to get one. Right fielder and first baseman Allen Craig compiled a .312 batting average from 2011-13 and hit an incredible .454 with runners in scoring...

Cardinals offense sorely misses Allen Craig

The Cardinals offense is struggling. Excluding the 12-run outburst on Sunday, the Cardinals offense has produced just 8 runs in its other 4 games, losing 3 of them. Its obvious that the Cardinals need Allen Craig back and fast. Since his injury, the team is hitting just .253 and, although they have had a few outbursts with two 12-run games and a 9 game, the team is averaging just...
