Cherington: Red Sox Knew About Crawford's Wrist Issues
Gammons Paints Gloomy Picture on Crawford: 'You Just Don't Know'
Bobby V, Day 1 of Camp: 'Look at Him, He's Already Throwing Out There!'

"One of the biggest negatives would be, Carl Crawford's wrist. It's fine to say he's going to play in May, but you just don't know. Mark DeRosa had virtually the same injury [and] had three operations, it's taken more than two years to come back, so you just don't know on that. I think that's a disappointment."-- Peter Gammons on Carl Crawford on WEEI's Mut & Merloni show

Did Theo's Investigation Uncover This? "I had dealt with the pain for the last four or five years. That's how long I had been getting shots in it." -- Crawford comes clean on being damaged goods

"We didn't do anything. How could I get tired?" -- Carl Crawford on Terry Francona's spring training
