I wish I had a dollar for everytime I saw Mets fans bemoaning the Mets offseason a year ago for not going after one of these players; especially Crawford and Dunn. 7 Years, $142,000,000 After a 2010 season in which he produced a line that looked like this: .307/.356/.495 Crawford completely tanked in Boston this […]
