Carl Crawford is done for the year as he will undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday. Thirteen games behind the Yankees in the AL East, Crawford apparently went to the Red Sox management and asked if they would allow him to undergo the surgery on his elbow so that he could be at 100 percent by the start of the 2013 season.

That's not elite production, but it's certainly impressive work that was aiding many a club. This decision by Crawford will also be a death blow to those few owners that continued to profess faith in the outfielder. At this point, the bandwagon is basically down to a single person on a tricycle.
