Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Carl (Crawford) works his ass off, and he doesn't have to. He can roll out of bed and be the fastest guy in baseball. He can take terrible routes to the ball and still catch everything. He's a five-tool guy with a great work ethic." - Tampa Bay Devil Rays Designated Hitter Jonny Gomes in ESPN: The Magazine (May 8, 2006)

Carl Crawford, Six Stolen Bases in a Game
Carl Crawford Baseball Card | Topps 2009 (#UHI79) | Baseball Almanac Collection
Carl Crawford will long be associated with the Devil Rays / Rays for the time he spent in Tampa Bay and the feats he accomplished there on the field. ESPN Analysts once weighed in on who best represents the face of the franchise and The Perfect Storm did "well"; Jake Larsen said, "If anybody should be considered the Rays face of the franchise, it's definitely gotta be Carl Crawford. What he's done so far in a still-young career is amazing." Jayson Stark said, "Crawford has remained a symbol of hope from the day he arrived at The Trop in 2002... if he isn't the face of where this team has been, he's at least the face of where they're going - assuming they don't trade him some day for half the Pacific Coast League all-star team." He wasn't traded by the Rays , he was granted free agency in 2010, but not before he...

...won the first All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award in team history. During his third appearance in a Midsummer Classic ( 2009 ), Crawford took-off towards the fence after Brad Hawpe connected with a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning. Crawford lept into the air, his leather extending above the 8-foot wall, and snatched the would-be homer, preserving the win for the American League. Jonathan Papelbon served-up the pitch to Hawpe and said in the post game press conference, "Defense wins championships, and tonight we proved defense wins All-Star Games as well. Obviously, it was a game-changing play. He won MVP because of that play, and deservedly so."

...became the first Rays outfielder to win a Gold Glove Award . Crawford was often tops amongst American League left fielders, leading the league at his position in defensive games played in 2007 and 2009, in putouts in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009, and in range factor in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008 - earning him a golden-glove in 2010.

Another defensive honor won by Carl Crawford in left field is the Field Bible Award , where he won the first one ever, was the first to win it twice, and he was the first to win it in back-to-back seasons.

...joined fellow Rays Carlos Pena (1B in 2007) and Evan Longoria (3B in 2009) in the Silver Slugger Award winners list, each being the first recipient in team history at their respective position. Crawford won his Silver Slugger bat in 2010, the first outfielder from Tampa Bay to win, and was tops on his team that season in batting average, at-bats, runs scored, hits, triples, stolen bases and total bases.

...was the first stolen base champion in team history in 2003, the first two-time, three-time and four-time stolen base leader in team history, and the first back-back leader (2x | 2003-2004 & 2006-2007). To date, no player from the team has led the league in stolen bases since Crawford.
