Carl Crawford signs with Red Sox

81

A few things: 1. Theo Epstein is a genius for keeping this so quiet. I hadn't even heard a whisper all day, and I get come from the game and check MLBTR to see the news. Wow. 2. Theo Epstein is an idiot. 140M dollars over 7 years? My god. 3. This probably means an outfielder from Boston is now available. Even though Wren said McLouth is going to be given a chance, it wouldn't hurt to give Epstein a call about Ellsbury. 4. Angels GM, Tony Reagins, might want to lay low for a little while. He (foolishly) told everyone the Angels would and could spend big this off-season, and they've already missed out on the two top outfielders.
