Carl Crawford Is Now An Official Red Sock
Today, the Red Sox formally introduced left fielder Carl Crawford as a member of the Red Sox. He has now officially signed the 7 year, $142 million contract that the Red Sox gave him on Wednesday. Crawford will hopefully continue his distinguished career as a great hitter, fielder, and most of all, baserunner. Crawford had a great season in 2010, going .307/19/90, which was his best year production-wise. He also stole 47 bases, which shows just how amazing he is, because that is a low number for him. He will bring a refreshing burst of speed to a team whose leading base stealer last year (Ryan Kalish) stole 10 bases. I am really happy about this move and I think this move along with Adrian Gonzalez will make the Red Sox a great team in 2011.
