Free agents the Red Sox might pursue
Carl Crawford, left fielder, Tampa Bay Rays
2010 stats: .307/.356/.495/19 HR/90 RBIs
Red Sox officials have met in recent days in Houston with Crawford and his representatives in Houston, It's possible the Sox are laying the groundwork for a deal at next week's winter meetings in Orlando. Fun fact: Crawford led the league in triples for the fourth time in his career in 2010. He's an outfielder in his prime who the Rays most likely will not pay to stay in Tampa Bay. He set a career high in RBIs (90), runs (110) and home runs (19). He made his fourth All-Star team and will likely be looking for a huge pay day in free agency. The Angels are expected to be a suitor, but the Red Sox and Yankees are also believed to be interested.
