The Orioles, who were playing for nothing but pride, had just tied the game at 3-3, and had a runner on base when Robert Andino hit a line drive single to left field. Who better to have in left field, than a 4x All Star, 4x Stolen Base League Leader and former Gold Glove winner, Carl Crawford. He's been one of the best players in MLB over the last decade and was the face of the franchise for the Devil Rays/ Rays, so naturally, Boston signed him to a huge contract this past off season.
Crawford will recover and have an outstanding career with the Boston Red Sox. But for the moment, I can't help but wonder, "Has there ever been this much irony on the final day of the year, between a player and his former team?" This was the most amazing finish to any regular season that I have ever seen!
