    Rays pick up Carl Crawford's $10 million option

    As expected, but now do they trade him? Yankees picked up Sheffield's option a few years ago and then dealt him to the Tigers, but maybe Kazmir and Iwamura trades freed up enough money to hold on to him.

    They might trade him at the deadline if they are out of contention, but as of right now they have a good team and hes one of their best players. If they feel they can't get him to a long term deal, then they deal him at the deadline as I think the Rays will be a 3rd place team next year behind the Yankees and Red Sox.

    He was up and down this year but I remember him closing in on 200 hits...

    Not sure exactly where he ended up but if they have any plans on contending next season, they're not going to deal him for any prospects...

    I don't see them trading him, unless it's at the deadline and they feel like they're out of contention. They're still a good team, I think they hold on to him.
