Yea, at this point in the season it would seem that there are more pressing areas for improvement (BULLPEN!!), but defense and more offensive continuity have to be right up there. Honestly, who wouldn't love to see Crawford heading our lineup and covering LF in 2011? This is a guy I think we really need to make a strong bid for this offseason. He makes perfect sense for the club, giving us that dynamic of great speed and offense at the top of the lineup, an element we've obviously been missing since Figgins left. The obvious defensive upgrade over Rivera would make a world of difference as well.
I know it's easy to balk at another big contract for an outfielder, but with Crawford's age and what he brings to the table overall, how can you miss?
Thoughts? Contract offers?
