Lost in the Red Sox weekend obituaries was the significance of Carl Crawford’s two-run, game-tying bomb of John Lackey.
That was Crawford’s 100th career round-tripper, making him the youngest player ever to reach 100HR, 100 3b, and 400 SB. In fact, at 29 years and 24 days, CC got to those three milestones nearly 4 years faster than some guy named Lou Brock (32 years, 11 months, 11 days). Anyone remember how that Brock guy’s career turned out?
I am not sure if CC will ultimately give a speech in Cooperstown or not, but if he keeps at this pace, there is a good shot. I only hope they make sure he wears a TB on his plaque.
