The Red Sox may have just become the best team in baseball. While the NY Yankees made an offer to Cliff Lee and the LA Angels handled their trade for Adrian Gonzalez, the Red Sox made arrangements with Carl Crawford, the talented left fielder who can lead them right to the top. Crawford will make $142 million over the course of seven seasons. The Red Sox have added two left-handed batters and two Gold Glovers to the team, and by adding the former Tampa Bay Ray player, they have added the second-most stolen bases; 409.
The Raptors vs. Knicks game ended up being closer than expected, with Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani upping the competition for New York’s Amar’e Stoudmire. Raymond Felton of the Knicks had 28 points and 11 assists, which greatly contributed to the 113-110 score. The game came after Toronto’s 17-point loss to the Knicks in Toronto, and the 24-point loss in Indiana, and so, while some of the calls, as well as the final score, were a disappointment to the Raptors, they definitely made progress.
