We get a lot of tips from readers about players and their after-hour activities. It is hard to verify the rumors. But there are patterns, and it is easy to believe that there is a core group of players that very much likes to participate in the Bay Area’s nightlife during the season.
That being said, there is one player that we have never heard associated with those rumors: Carl Crawford. Not once.
Dave Wirth of 10 News (WTSP.com) asked Crawford about his in-season, post-game habits (click here to read the entire interview)…
“We play 162 games, there’s no time to get into trouble. I go home, go to sleep and get some rest. I don’t understand how guys do it anyway. I know there’s a lot of temptation out there, but I do a good job of just going home, resting and getting ready for the next game.”
Evan Longoria may be the team leader in the eye of the public, but it is too bad more players don’t follow the example of CC.
