Carl Crawford said Sunday that the new turf at Tropicana Field has made his legs sore.
Crawford asked to play designated hitter Sunday because of the soreness. "My legs have been bothering me a lot because of the turf, " Crawford said. "We've been on it a lot, here and in Minnesota for four days. It's too thick. We need to get a boat show or something in here to flatten it down. This turf hurts real bad. The old turf felt better. I'm just sore."
Considering his legs are what make him so valuable, how much of an issue is this going to be?
