Today’s Hitter is Carl Crawford
Carl hit .273 with 8 HR’s, 57 RBI’s, and 25 SB’s in ’08
The main reason of this being B.J Upton in the lead-off spot. Mr. “I will never bat out of the two spot in the line up” needs someone with more of a threat on base so he receives better looks at the dish. Carl will need to become more of a team player this year if B.J does lead off. This means actually doing something called bunting and moving runners into scoring position. Also, lets hope that nagging leg injury doesn’t flair up again. We all want to see Carl’s pit crew more active this year.
Predicted ’09 Stats: .280, 11 HR’s, 65 RBI’s and 40 SB’s
