Crawford has message for ESPN's Valentine

LF Carl Crawford likes to be appreciated, and was happy that his spectacular running and full-out diving catch on Monday got play of the day on ESPN's SportsCenter.

But when he heard ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine, a former big-league infielder/outfielder and manager, suggesting that he didn't have to leave his feet to make the play, he had a witty retort.

"Tell Bobby Valentine to take that. He said I could have caught that ball standing up. And I want to tell him, first inning, just getting warmed up, I definitely couldn't have caught it standing. Everybody knows if I can catch a ball standing, I'm going to do it because I don't want to get hurt,'' Crawford said. "I can't believe he said that. Obviously he don't know what it's like to have this kind of ability.''
