Post-Game 70 Thread: Dodgers Offense Recovers After Dropping Mike

POLL: Majority Would Want Jon Lester Back In Sox Uniform

Our latest FenwayNation Poll asked readers to select one among ten still-active former Red Sox players as the guy they'd like to have back on the team.

(AP Photo)As one of the principals in The Great Punto Trade Of 2012, Carl Crawford was the prime example of the "Failure To Adapt to Boston Syndrome". Now, another team has given up on him—the Los Angeles Dodgers. Magic Johnson and his minions have designated Crawford for assignment—still owing him $35 million. In probably the worst free-agent signing in Boston history, Crawford was inked to a seven-year, $142 million contract in 2011. Dumpage of that albatross (along with the weighty contracts of Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez) was a godsend to The Carmine Hose. Without it, the 2013...
