Lukewarm Stove: Carl Crawford Fallout

Chicago Cubs Rumors

This is about a lukewarmy as the Lukewarm Stove gets, but I thought it worth mentioning that, with the Red Sox signing Carl Crawford, the Chicago Cubs’ task of moving Kosuke Fukudome just got a lot harder.

You say, “wha? Crawford and Fukudome are not in the same league, how can one affect the other?” I know, I know.

I’m simply saying that, with Crawford in the fold, the Red Sox will likely no longer really be looking for another outfielder this Winter. Fukudome, at the right price, certainly would have been considered. The Red Sox were one of the few rumored destinations, so taking them out of the fold can only make the task more difficult.


That’s it. That’s all I’m saying. Like I said – lukewarm.
