Carl Crawford recalls hearing about the Red Sox’ offer from his agent last month:

It was the night of Dec. 8, and Crawford was driving along one of Houston’s many freeways when he took a call from agent Brian Peters, who had received lucrative offers from both the Red Sox and the Angels and wanted to know where the All-Star left fielder preferred to play … “He told me the dollar amount,” Crawford said, “and I almost got into a wreck on the freeway.”

Call me crazy, but something tells me that the Red Sox could have bid a bit lower and still gotten Crawford.

    just like the could’ve bid less of a posting fee for Dice-K Craig. too bad they don’t have psychics on staff.

      Leave the psychic work to the Dodgers. Makes me so glad the McCourt’s didn’t win the bid for the sox.

    How were the Red Sox supposed to predict the Angels wouldn’t spend any money this winter? the owner of the Angels didn’t even correctly predict it at the start of the offseason.
