As a Red Sox fan I admit that at first this little slide was all a big laugher.
They were going to make the playoffs with ease and September would just be like garbage time in the last few minutes of a football or basketball blowout.
Laughing at first…then giggling…then snickers…now just PISSED.
Carl Crawford has been writing some lame ass diary on ESPN when he really should be working on his game.
Diary? Really? Cant even call it a blog? What a fucking girl.
And now he’s out of the lineup today with a “stiff neck” during one of the most important weeks of his career??
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I thought JD Drew was on the DL? This is just insanity.
You can read his most recent post HERE and hopefully you’re able to get through the first 4 paragraphs without throwing up (I couldnt).
But I want to point out a couple things that piss me off.
**In the first paragraph he blames Marco Scutaro for not telling him to slide on a play at the plate this past weekend.**
I cant stand Marco Scutaro, but Im letting him off the hook on this one. Crawford just threw him completely under the bus here. Signs of a coward and a shitty teammate if you ask me.
**He says that he hears the boos when he goes back to Tampa.**
Um…does he leave his hearing aide at home when he plays at Fenway? They boo him louder there than anywhere else!
**He’s proud that Tim Wakefield got his 200th win.
BFD. Wakefield is another story for another time that will take up tons of pages of ranting from me on why the Red Sox deserve to not make playoffs and Wakefield is part of that.
**Ortiz told the team they should be in panic mode but Crawford disagreed.**
Um…you might want to listen to a guy who knows a little bit about being behind and coming back to win a series (2004 ALCS). Crawford hasnt won shit yet he wont listen to Ortiz, a proven leader of a winning clubhouse? Get real Crawford.
**He sums up what the Red Sox have to do over this last week in one word: Win.**
NO SHIT CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!
**Crawford is in a fantasy football league, co owns a team with his brother, and has LeSean McCoy, and thinks his team is pretty good.**
How about you let your brother continue to run the team and you focus on more important stuff like saaaaaaay…NOT SUCKING AT BASEBALL RIGHT NOW.
**He finishes by apologizing to Red Sox fans for his shitty season and says “hopefully when we get into these playoffs, I can be the real Carl Crawford that I know I am.”**
Ok…”WHEN”?? Sounds a little cocky to me for a guy who’s sucked ass all year and his team is now on the cusp of one of the all time greatest regular season baseball chokes.
But wait its ok…he’s sorry.
In the words of George Costanza: “You can stuff your sorry’s in a sack mister!”
Even if the Red Sox make the playoffs this year, they wont get very far at all. Too many injuries the pitching on these other playoff teams is much better than they are right now.
