Deal Done: Crawford to Boston!

The Red Sox have made another huge move at the Winter Meetings.  According to the Boston Globe, the Sox have signed OF Carl Crawford to a 7-year, $142 million contract.

The deal reportedly came together late last night and Crawford may take his physical as early as Thursday.  Crawford joins newly acquired 1B Adrian Gonzalez in the Boston line-up. 

That's now four of the five things in our five-point plan that we outlined in November for the Red Sox to do.  Great job Theo!

How's this for a nice line-up in Friendly Fenway: 

LF Crawford
2B Pedroia
1B Gonzalez
3B Youkilis
DH Ortiz
RF Drew
SS Scutaro
C Saltalamacchia
CF Ellsbury

Not too shabby!
