Outfielder Carl Crawford has agreed to a 7-year, $142 million deal with the Boston Red Sox. Espn.com has the story, below.

Carl Crawford #13, then with the Tampa Bay Rays, fouls off a pitch against the Baltimore Orioles during the game at Tropicana Field on September 27, 2010 in St. Petersburg, Florida.


Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona called left fielder Carl Crawford a game-changer. Turns out he might have been guilty of understatement.

Between the multitalented Crawford, who a source confirmed came to terms Wednesday night on a seven-year, $142 million deal, and slugging first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, acquired by trade last weekend from San Diego and in line for his own seven-year deal for an estimated $154 million, the Red Sox appear set for the next decade.
