The madness between these two teams continues (and the rest of baseball pays the price for it...)

Extremely unethical, but it's the evil empire; I'm sure George Steinbrenner would be proud.

It might be a dirty trick, but it's also gamesmanship and leveraging, agents and GMs do this all the time to each other. The Red Sox were dumb enough to fall for it. Even though Crawford is a much better player than he showed so far, it's still a huge contract.

I don't have a problem with it, it's how the game goes.

Poor Red Sox are crying all the way to the bank.
A pox on both of their houses.

Now this is an ESPN story if I've ever seen one. Total non-story other than ESPN trying to build some controversy.

Here's an unbelievable statistic: going into today's games, Carl Crawford's OBP in 2011 is .295, only .002 ahead of Adam Dunn's .293. Wow.
