It’s not that I wish Crawford ill, but what were the Dodgers thinking?
The Dodgers wanted Gonzalez and have a ton of money to burn. To get AGon, they had to take Crawford and Beckett.
To be honest, who among us saw this coming? Crawford is a very good player.
Given Crawford’s spate of injuries the last couple of years, I don’t think this is surprising at all, really. And picking up A-Gon in the midst of one of the most pedestrian seasons of his career following shoulder concerns doesn’t seem like the height of wisdom to me, but we’ll see how that plays out.
I think history has shown that having a ton of money to burn can be more of a curse than a blessing. It didn’t work out so well for the Yankees when they were spending gobs, and it certainly didn’t work for the Red Sox, Cubs, Mets or Angels.
Now the Dodgers are learning that lesson.
You can’t just spend, you must spend wisely.
