Red Sox sign Carl Crawford to 7-yr/$142M deal

Wow. This and especially Gonzalez move makes up for not doing **** last yr. Glad they waited.

Re: Red Sox sign Carl Crawford to 7-yr/$142M deal

I thought they were saying the Angels were going to sign him. What's their lineup going to look like now...Ortiz must be hitting sixth if they can't get rid of him...Or will they hit Crawford Second or even leadoff? They certainly have options

Re: Red Sox sign Carl Crawford to 7-yr/$142M deal

my guess on a line up is like

Ellsbury
Crawford
Gonzalez
Youkilis
Ortiz
Pedrioa
Drew
Catcher
Scutaro

Or something close, I'm not sure I would start elsbury, crawford, pedrioa 1,2,3. Too many mosquitos? You could, but idk.

You could swap youk and gonzo in the 3/4 spot. I think Crawford will be at the top of the order regardless, and either Pedrioa or Ellsbury with him and the other behind... but like diable said, they have a lot of options. Pitching needs to step up this year (I'm looking at you guys Beckett and Lackey) and Papelbon needs to get back to his old self too.

Big moves son.. big moves.

Pedroia has some pop in his bat, and absolutely kills fastballs, which he'd see more of hitting in the 2 hole. They like alternating, so it'll probably be Ellsbury, Pedroia, Crawford, Youkilis, Gonzalez in the top five. It's after that that it gets a little spotty.

Crawford
Pedoria
Gonzo
Youk
Ortiz
Drew
Catcher
Scourt
Ellsbury

best lineup, no way Pedroia hits 6th, Ellsbury should be ninth, think of the speed with him at 9 and crawford at 1

Re: Red Sox sign Carl Crawford to 7-yr/$142M deal

A great signing for right now and the following 2/3 years, but I'm worried about how this one will look towards the end of the contract.

If we can find a way to grab Russell Martin and a couple of decent relievers (hopefully Guerrier is one of them), we're in great shape, especially if the Yankees lose out on Lee.

I've been hearing some (likely compeltely baseless) Jose Reyes rumors. If the Sox could grab him from the Mets (since everybody there hates everybody at this point), and sign Russell Martin and a reliever or too, I would jizz.

If they could get Reyes for Scutaro & prospects there'd be a wave of suicides in New York.

Imagine if the rumors for Reyes are true and they do sign Russel Martin. Top that with the case that Lee turns down the Yankees. Talk about a nightmare for Yankee fans.

Beltre is not going to have a good year regardless of where he signs. It's going to be Seattle all over again.
