The Curse of Carl Crawford

Last night may have been one of the greatest nights in MLB history. Within just a few minutes, the Orioles rallied from one down in the bottom of the ninth to beat Boston, 4-3.

Meanwhile, Evan Longoria hit his second homer of the night to beat the Yankees.

The Rays are in the playoffs, the Red Sox are not.

It all comes down to the play (or lack thereof) of Carl Crawford.

I'd like to get the feedback of Red Sox fans on how pooly Crawford has played since joining the team. You have to admit Crawford should have caught that ball in left field. He choked. He cost you the game.  

Crawford is a bust.

[Tampa Tribune] Tampa's Schadenfreude: "The Orioles beat the Red Sox on Wednesday with a two-run, ninth inning rally that began with two outs. The winning run scored when left fielder Carl Crawford, the former Ray who took Boston's big money last December, couldn't come up with a game-saving catch. You want more irony? That fence in left field at the Trop was shortened a few years ago per Crawford's request. Seemed he wanted to rob a few hitters of home runs. 'God bless that little short wall in left field,' Ben Zobrist said."
