You can't punch Papi, Pedroia or Ellsbury
With respect #2- If Crawford had "hit" and stole and ran the bases and played a decent outfield he would most definitely not have been the "punching bag for the team's failures".
'as part of that deal you MUST spend 40+ classroom hours this winter in media handling classes'.
Agreed. It's entirely possible a decent Crawford would be enough to push them into the playoffs in 2011. As I recall it was a rather thin margin they missed by.
If the Boston media is the worst thing Carl Crawford has ever dealt with, he should consider himself an exceptionally lucky man.
I don't recall the Boston media being particularly harsh other than pointing out he sucked. I think the experience of the media was more of Crawford's problem.
Had he hit well he would still be a punching bag for the team's failures because of the big contract. You can't punch Papi, Pedroia or Ellsbury.
that he's not a very bright guy.
"By the time I was his age, I'd been out of grandparents for most of my life,"
My last grandparent died when I was 2 years old, I think. Obviously I don't remember any of them.
Apparently that's pretty unusual, and my older siblings do remember at least one.
Life is odd - my g-grandfather made it to 104, but his son (my grandfather) barely cracked 50. Go figure.

I think Carl grew up kinda hardscrabble. Houston IIRC?

He always had the look of someone with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome to me.
Boston media shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.

I am all for sexy time with the ladies, but I am really glad BBTF doesn't have avatars. Just not needed.
My heart goes out to the man who does his work when the "boss" is away, as well as when he is at home. And the man who, when given a letter for Garcia, quietly take the missive, without asking any idiotic questions, and with no lurking intention of chucking it into the nearest sewer, or of doing aught else but deliver it, never gets "laid off," nor has to go on a strike for higher wages. Civilization is one long anxious search for just such individuals. Anything such a man asks shall be granted; his kind is so rare that no employer can afford to let him go. He is wanted in every city, town and village- in every office, shop, store and factory. The world cries out for such: he is needed, & needed badly- the man who can carry a message to Garcia.

Hmm. I'm workin-up a theory as to "JK"'s true identity.
You mean there was a fourth secret of Fatima?
Logically if you had to deal with people who said 'you suck' everyday in every way possible, then pushed for millions more to boo and hiss at you wouldn't you find that hard to deal with?
I'm a huge fan of the BBTF format. No avatars, no signatures, no threaded comments, no smiley graphics, just plain text in the order we say it. It's clean, easy to read and follow, and free of unnecessary crap.
- oh please
he looks like a normal american Black man who has some NA ancestors. i have seen people who are Black who really DO have fetal alcohol and carl doesn't look nothin like that. his nose and mouth are normal. for a Black man, that is
