Everyone thinks Carl Crawford is going to the Angels

Yes, he dined with the Yankees, and sure, anyone can swoop in if they wanted to, but Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports that two sources close to Carl Crawford are saying that he’s going to the Angels.

Which, for what it’s worth, a lot of people are saying down here in Orlando. Saxson cites “multiple high-ranking sources” saying such things. I tend to talk to multiple low-level sources — they’re young, but they’re sweet — who say the same thing.  Likely filtered down from their high-ranking bosses and repeated to me in order to make them feel like they’re in the know.  We’re similar like that, ya know?

No one thinks there is much to the Yankees rumors. One guy told me he believed it was a negotiation ploy. I kind of doubt the Yankees can really be used like that, but Luke Scott isn’t always wrong, so I believe him here.

    Angels need a lot of things and Carl Crawdford might be one of them. Haven’t looked at the’11 schedule yet so I won’t really worry about it happening til October.
