Floyd on Crawford
Former Ray Cliff Floyd had some interesting things to say about Carl Crawford’s contract situation on SIRIUS XM’s MLB Home Plate channel hosted by Jim Duquette.
“Well, my feeling is I think he will outprice himself in Tampa,” Floyd said. “Of course, it’s a win-win for CC. My advice to him would be to stay with Tampa because it makes him a ten-five guy and then he can pretty much pick anywhere he wants to go as opposed to being a free agent. But he’s a smart young man and I think the biggest thing he’s got going for himself is the game has changed right into his corner. Defense and stolen bases and batting average and things like that are definitely on his side. So he’s in a win-win. Hopefully he stays healthy and he makes the right decision. I think his decision will probably be that he outprices himself and becomes a free agent. And, of course, the Steinbrenners in New York will be banging at the door to get him.”
