CARL CRAWFORD RUMORS

Searching for the 2016 Dodgers’ leadoff hitter

With Howie Kendrick back (almost), the Dodgers’ roster is pretty well set, aside from your multiple-time-a-year Andre Ethier and/or Carl Crawford trade rumor. There is a question about the lineup, though: Who’s going to hit leadoff? It’s an interesting question. There isn’t a clear-cut leadoff hitter on the roster right now. Joc Pederson is the prototype for a leadoff guy...

Hits & Misses: Carl Crawford Money, Braves Rebuild, Captain Clutch

Remember when Mets owner Fred Wilpon coined the famous phrase “Carl Crawford money” when describing what it would cost to keep then Mets shortstop Jose Reyes from bolting for free agency? I was reminded of that on Sunday when Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe wrote: “In the first five years of his seven-year contract (two with Boston and three with the Dodgers), Carl Crawford has...

Necessary Moves: Carl Crawford, Los Angeles Dodgers

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective and made up solely of notable names. A player can be deemed...

Dodgers unconcerned about Mike Fiers’ alleged pine tar use

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are unconcerned about allegations that Mike Fiers may have had pine tar in his glove during his no-hitter on Friday night. Players like Carl Crawford and manager Don Mattingly downplayed photos that surfaced showing a shiny substance in the Astros pitcher’s glove. “I don’t want to take anything away from his night,” Crawford told the Los...

Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS

Heading into a rematch of last year’s National League Championship Series, there are plenty of storylines and important players. But, the proverbial “X-Factor” for the Dodgers in this series is none other than Carl Crawford. Crawford is coming off his best season (119, according to wRC+) since his final year in Tampa Bay (2010, 134 wRC+). He’s also coming off an incredibly...

Carl Crawford’s Excuse-Making About Time With Red Sox Getting Pretty Old

Here’s a word of advice for Carl Crawford: Just let it go, man. We begged you last summer to move on, focus on life in Los Angeles and forget about your time in Boston. Yet, here you are, once again complaining about how bad it was to be a member of the Red Sox. The irony here is that no one talks about Carl Crawford in Boston until Crawford starts talking about Boston. In his...

Seriously, does anyone NOT expect Carl Crawford to end up with the Yankees?

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Mattinglys activated Carl "The Perfect Storm" Crawford from the DL, where he's been parked since late May. He's now riding the pines. He's going to sit until someone gets hurt, or retirement, or doomsday, or whichever comes first.The Dodgers are paying him $20 million per. This is Year IV of a seven-year deal, originally cobbled together by the Redsock...

Carl Crawford’s Rehab Progressing Well

Carl Crawford hadn’t done much in his first two rehab games in Albuquerque, striking out twice with a single in five plate appearances, and that’s not a big deal. Yeah, it’s about Crawford getting his timing down after missing well over a month since his ankle injury, but it’s mostly about showing that the ankle is healthy. So far tonight against El Paso, he’s doing just...

Rockies @ Dodgers June 17, 2014: Carl Crawford Is Probably Gone For Awhile

As the Dodgers prepared for the second game of their series against the Rockies, they passed on some bad news. Carl Crawford‘s sprained ankle might be worse than the team initially suggested. Given their track record on injuries, is it really a surprise? J.P. Hoornstra reported that Carl Crawford left his rehab at Camelback Ranch and flew to Los Angeles to visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache...
