[Update] Carl Crawford claims he was misquoted.
[3:25pm] Marc Topkin has some quotes from a story on Carlos Pena in this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated. Within the story is this quote from Carl Crawford, essentially confirming what many of us already suspected. That this will be the last season for both Crawford and Pena in a Rays uniform…
“This core group is going to still be together, me and Carlos are the only two guys that are going to be leaving,” notes Crawford, perhaps giving away more than he should. “We definitely feel like this is a special year for us, and we would like to do something good.”
This is the reality folks. It sucks. The train is coming, and there is no way we can get out of the way. At least we can applaud CC for being honest.
