Kudos Carl Crawford

I've ranted about Carl Crawford's lack of walks and plate discipline for years. So it's pretty awesome to wake up and see Crawford's BB% at 9.5% through 100 plate appearances. It's also nice to scope his O-Swing% and see it sitting at 28.3%, a five-year low. Crawford's wOBA is .347, that's about .030 points higher than last year's, and while his OPS is a handful of points lower that's due to the lack of power. Concerning, but you have to figure some of those infield flyballs will stop being infield flyballs at some point.

Whoever is responsible for this patient Carl needs a raise, it's been a long time coming.
