nothing to this rumor, as Crawford is one of the cornerstones of this team for the next 5+ years

I can't see the Rays trading Crawford. And I have to think if they put him on the block 29 teams would be interested.

I think they should send him back down to AAA so they don't have to pay him as much like they do with the rest of their talent.

I wish they'd send him back to AAA too so I could go to Durham and watch him play. :-D

I guess no one is untouchable but it would be a shock if TB wanted to trade Crawford. Doesn't make much sense.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

As close as you are, you should have been in Durham a few times last year to see Young and Upton ;-D ;-D

I have seen a lot of TB prospects play. I got to see Crawford a couple of times the year he got called up. I usually go when the Tides are in town. :-)

I saw Young when the D-Rays came to Sarasota to play the Reds during ST. All he did was hit a ROCKET right at the pitcher (who made a really nice play to catch it), then come up and do it again. It was like he was gunning for their pitchers. :-b

exactly the way I read it ..
Hell the author openly admits he is speculating and that the chances are slim, but he had no qualms about titling his article to create a story that was not there.
