AL East Out of Reach?

Must pause now for a baseball interruption, but one that pertains to Ellis and Sevie. Stunning news tonight: Red Sox will reportedly sign left fielder Carl Crawford to a seven-year contract, extending into 2017. This development coupled with the news four days ago that the Sox will sign Adrian Gonzalez at first base through 2018 would seem to put the AL East almost out of reach from the Yankees for at least the next year, whatever Cliff Lee’s status. Who knows if these deals will seem good when Ellis is 12 and Sevie 9, but Crawford/Gonzalez will be among the Red Sox stars with whom our kids grow up — exciting players to help our own duo form their first impressions of baseball.
