A writer friend points out that Carl Crawford has made more in salary with the Boston Red Sox, thro a mere 12 games in 2011, than Ted Williams pulled down over an entire career. Cricket followers: Ted Williams may be the greatest batsman among the 17,000 who have ever played in Major League Baseball. He appeared in 2,292 regular-season games. Certainly not to question Crawford, in any way, against this: Williams was a patriot. His career was disrupted twice, by service in World War II and Korea. I wonder how much Carl Crawford will make in the unlikely event his Red Sox career spans another 2,280 games.
