Who’s Your Tool Of The Week? [VOTE]
This week’s battle for out Tool of the Week is a clash between two fairly big embarrassments.
Red Sox fans will remember fondly the trade that sent Carl Crawford to the Dodgers in 2012, but it’s one that Los Angeles fans are still second guessing after the outfielder’s release over the weekend. For the organizers of the Copa America tournament in Glendale, AZ, it was a memorable weekend for all the wrong reasons when they played the wrong national anthem before the Uruguay/Mexico clash.
Carl Crawford has had a bad 2016 for the Dodgers and was ultimately released from his deal a year and a half early. Crawford was hitting just .185 with no home runs in 30 games for Los Angeles. Worse yet is that they still have to pay him almost $39 million through 2017.
The organizers of the Copa America game between Uruguay and Mexico made a major flub when the Chilean national anthem accidentally played for Uruguay. Players for the South American country looked visibly confused as they waited through two minutes of the wrong song.
So let us know if you think the poor play of Carl Crawford or the miscue by the staff in Glendale is your pick for Tool of the Week!
