Gammons: The Red Sox are going to “go hard” after Carl Crawford
Peter Gammons was on WEEI today and said that he thinks the Red Sox are going to be all over Carl Crawford this winter:
I’d be shocked if the Yankees were seriously interested in Crawford. Their outfield is in pretty good shape -- Gardner, Granderson and Swisher are all solid -- and represents the one part of the team that is at least relatively inexpensive (emphasis on the “relatively”). My guess is that if the Yankees are connected with Crawford it will be one of those famous “pretend we’re interested to make him more expensive for the Red Sox” deals. Which are great fun, by the way.
