Video: What's expected of Crawford?
July, 17, 2012
In his first at-bat for the Red Sox this season, Carl Crawford grounded a base hit. He also walked and scored two runs in Boston's 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday.
Before the game, he acknowledged that he put too much pressure on himself last season, and said he hopes to avoid that -- and the discouraging results -- this year. Yet, the expectations in Boston and around the team are undoubtedly high.
In the video above, Jon Sciambi and Terry Francona of BBTN discuss those expectations, and Francona says the key is for Crawford to get going fast. "What they need is for him to cause chaos on the bases," says Francona.
