Carl CrawfordThe Red Sox have placed outfielder Carl Crawford on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, the Boston Herald's Mike Silverman tweets.

Crawford left Friday's game against the Brewers in the first inning after beating out an infield single on Casey McGehee's throw on a chopper to third. He was replaced by Darnell McDonald. The team called up Josh Reddick to take his place.

Silverman also tweeted that Boston manager Terry Francona said the medical staff told him Crawford would need 10 to 14 days to recover, so putting him on the DL was a "no-brainer."

After a slow start that saw him hitting .155/.204/.227 at the end of April, Crawford has hit .295/.318/.476 since with five homers.

Those are sick numbers.  He's the American League MVP, right.

John - Adam Dunn is oly batting .181 with 7 home runs and costs more than David Ortiz (who is hitting .320 with 17 home runs And 45 RBI).  So no way would the red sox have made better with Dunn nor do I think he ever was a real target for the club.  As far as the post I agree with is John Lackey but that's as far as I go.  Carl Crawford isn't living up to his massive contract (and I don't like the money part of it) but it's pretty hard to live up to that kind of contract.

and that's why your not the GM of the red sox but the GM of someone like the mets...u freaking moron!  Ortiz is ripping it up.  Lackey I agree with.  You want Narva to play left field?  Pull your head out your ass son!

Lackey was just as bad a signing Like i said last winter   i would have 1. let ortiz go (+13 mil) 2. not sign crawford (+20 mil) I would never have had signed cameron or scutaro but be that as it may the two would be purged after this yr (+15 mil)  I would have brought that kid that hit the grandslams last yr to play the outfield signed Adam Dunn to play DH shopped for a backend rotation guy.  Crawford is a waste  lackey is a waste.  i dont know why they dont continue to cultivate their young talent

Carl Crawford was turning things around at the plate for the most part.  But not worth the salary that was thrown at him.  Yes he was gotten for his speed (which he hasn't really used all that much with the Red Sox this year).  He won't hit .340 and have 30+ home runs but when (and if ) he gets on he will reak havoic on the pitching staff and that is why the Sox got him.  it's only a minor injury for Crawford, I mean how many players have pulled their groins or whatnot running down the first base path?  Lots of them.  I am more worried about John Lackey then I am will Crawford.  Last night Lester wasn't great either.  Never liked the Lackey signing either.

See here ya go!  Reason # 3 why the signing of this guy was putrid.  He's all about the legs.  if his legs are  even dinged HE CANT PLAY!  THEY PAID 140 MILLION for his legs!  Now supposed they did what i said and signed Dunn  granted is in a slump but he'll come out and hit 40 hrs  if he strains his hamstring he'd never know it  and all that for 4 yrs and 60 mil i wouldve let ortiz go which is stupid in hindsight because lo and behold hes batting 320 cause its his walk yr  Crawford stinks you heard it here since december.  mark my words  hes gonna be an anchoer   the anchor that drags this team down   him and lackey what an appropos name
