This actually would make some sense...if Soriano went to Boston at the same time.
1. Henry clearly disliked the Crawford signing.
2. Epstein pushed for it
3. That's $68 million in salary relief...for Boston.
4. Soriano is actually well-suited for Fenway, either as a LF or a DH. Lots of wind-killed fly balls to left would be off/over The Monster.
5. Crawfords speed is well-suited to the left field corner in Wrigley.
My initial thought was I didn't want the last 3 years of Crawford's contract, but the more I think about it, it may make us a better team right now.
Don't know how this would effect the rest of the negotiations, but how cool would it be to see this turn into a huge blockbuster? They've got all the time in the world to work it out, right?
