Tampa Bay Rays news and links: End of an era

Or at least of a contract.

The must-read today is a long profile by Scott Miller at Bleacher Report on what former-Ray Carl Crawford is up to these days. This is actually his final year under contract for the Dodgers, so he’s about to finish up being paid over $20 million a year not to play baseball.

He talks about the breakdown of his body, his time in Tampa Bay, Boston, and Los Angeles, the impact Joe Maddon had on him, and his relationship to baseball now. It really is good. H/t to @RogerMooney50 for the link. Favorite quote:

"If Rocco [Baldelli] can coach first base, I know I can do that."
