Michael from Rise of the Rays, is claiming I said the Tampa Bay Rays are not picking up Carl Crawford’s option.
I have not said that. So to be clear, I said that I heard they MIGHT NOT pick up the option, not that they were not going to.
Florida is known to be a cheap state when it comes to their teams. So $10 million is a bit much for any of the Florida baseball teams.
You need a fan base who is willing to spend money in order for the team to spend money on their players. The Florida baseball teams do not have that.
I did not know this, but thanks to Joey and Freddy for letting me know, Michael Kay also mentioned the Rays might not pick up Crawford’s option on his show on 1050 ESPN Radio.
