Red Sox Snag Carl Crawford

My night just got a little better!

The Boston Globe and other sources, including ESPN, are reporting that the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a 7 year deal with Carl Crawford for $142 million.

One word: Awesome!

From the Boston Globe:

The deal came to fruition late last night according to a Major Source with direct knowledge of the negotiations. The deal will be complete upon Crawford taking a physical, which could come as soon as today.

The deal makes Crawford the highest-paid outfielder in baseball history. His contract language includes partial no-trade protection.

The Angels had been in pursuit of Crawford, the top position player on the free-agent market. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had dinner with Crawford and agent Brian Peters on Tuesday night. The Texas Rangers also were involved.
