[QUOTE]well, if we stick to the point - of what to do w/ him - then blame means nothing the only thing that matters is what would you do moving forward i try and find a match to dump him - Henry would have to approve eating at least 25 million and/or taking on at least 50 million in another's team's problem

You can't do anything with Krawford. He is an untouchable. Very few teams have the budget for a $142 million contract for one player. The Yankees, Phillies, Tigers, Nationals(maybe), Rangers(maybe) . So he will be in Boston for a long time.
All his defenders, fail to admit, fundamentally he is already a bust, for the money for sure. The man has 23 walks in over 500 PA's , must be his hamstring. Need a good hamstring to take a walk.
He swings at anything , must be his wunderlich score. He is a card carrying TURKEY. He's a carpet hitter, small market phenom, hands of stone in the outfield, no arm, and no place to hide.
While it's no fault of his, Theo backed up the Brinks Truck to sign him, Crawford had to realise what he was getting himself into coming to Boston, with it's witch burning history. Nice place , but a few skeleton's in the closet. Not a real forgiving place.
If Crawford thought he could come to Boston, sign a mega buck deal and not be in the spot light , he's dumber than... of yes the Wunderlich. At this point, they couldn't trade Crawford and $50 million , for Rudy Seanz and he is out of baseball.
