Red Sox Carl Crawford Says He Was Taunted With Racial Slur by Boston Fan

Carl Crawford has not played very well for the Red Sox.

So, creative slander is warranted, but no need for the racial slurs, you are better than that Sox fans, don’t go down that route it isn’t that serious.

The fan — who Crawford claimed uttered “a racial slur” — routinely made his feelings known with regard to the left fielder’s $142 million contract and whether he was earning it.

“Talking about that guy, he actually called me a racial slur to begin the game,” said Crawford, who hit .255 with a .289 on-base percentage last season. “He was the only one I had a problem with. People in Boston don’t even do that. So I don’t know what that was about. It’s not that bad in Boston, like that.”
