Quote of the Day: Mike Cameron on Carl Crawford

Feb 17, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

Mike Cameron outfield

Gordon Edes spoke with Mike Cameron today down at Red Sox camp in Fort Myers. The question: “what does Carl Crawford bring to the team?

“Carl? Sheeee. Damn near 200 million dollars.”

I have loved Mike Cameron for more than a decade.  I love him even more now.

    It’s too bad he’s gotta wait for the inevitable JD Drew or Jacoby Ellsbury injuries to land some regular playing luckily, either of those injuries figures to happen before lunch time today…so I guess it’s no big deal.

      You get infinite thumbs ups.

      And by suppertime, Cam will be injured. I’m pretty sure Darnell McDonald is using voodoo dolls on these guys.

      Don’t be hating on Ellsbury because he had one injury that the Red Sox mismanaged. Cameron isn’t exactly the model for playing injury free.

      Jeremiah, JD Drew hurt? Yes, but give ellsbury a break will you. He had broken ribs. It was the first time he’s missed any playing time in his professional career. He’s not a candidate to get hurt again (with Adrian Beltre safely in Texas and Ellsbury patrolling CF). Unless Darnell McDonald’s got more than one voodoo doll in his locker.

        Drew has averaged 131 games a year in his time with the Red Sox. Yes, he’s fragile, but he’s learned to manage it, and the Red Sox will have plenty of options for giving him a day off this year. Drew’s injury problems are much less significant than they’re made out to be.

      Breaking news, the Red Sox have outfield depth.

    Did he just go all Clay Davis?!?!?!?

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Feb 17, 2011 at 10:46 AM

      Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

    Man, he’s always ready for those questions! I loved his quote from last season, when asked what he would bring to the Red Sox:

    “Just want to add a little bit of color, sexiness.”

    +1 for Cam

    He’ll be here all season, folks! No applause just throw money…
