Call me crazy, but for the entire season last year, Carl Crawford suffered from a severe case of “cut the check syndrome.” You know, they ailment that sets in when you receive exorbitant quantities of money, causing not to perform anymore. Well, he’ supposed to miss opening day because of a bum wrist. We’ll see his condition is still lingering when he returns.
Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford probably won’t be ready for Opening Day, as he was told Monday to curtail his swinging and throwing for five to seven days.
Crawford, coming off left wrist surgery, experienced some inflammation last week and was examined on Monday by Dr. Donald Sheridan, who performed his surgery back in January.
“The Opening Day thing is probably not realistic,” said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. “It might be. But probably not.”
