When the Boston Red Sox swooped in to grab Carl Crawford in early December, they offered him a huge contract that almost made him swerve off the road while he was driving.
Boston was thrilled to get the left fielder, but just in case things don’t work out with Crawford the Red Sox added an extremely unique provision into his deal.

New York’s level of interest in Crawford was unclear, but Boston is evidently taking no chances about the Yankees’ future interest in their prized free agent.
