Boston's Carl Crawford, who's been the subject of much New England angst, struggled last season in large part due to lingering wrist injury. So it was with a mounting sense of dread that Crawford on Monday subjected his wrist to probing physicians and their scary instruments. The news, as WEEI’s Rob Crawford reports, is somewhere between “bad” and “good.” He tweets:
