Allen Craig: ‘I Was Trying To Be Aggressive And Make A Play For Koji’ (Video)

Why not try to expand Craig’s versatility...

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.

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.
