The injured outfielder also has 142 millions reasons why he should shut himself down, undergo Tommy John surgery like he hinted at last weekend, and start planning for the future.
When Crawford does return to the BoSox, he will not be 100 percent. That hasnâ€™t stopped him from looking ahead to Monday, which is when the 30-year-old hopes to play in his first major-league game of what to date has been an empty vessel of a season.

PAWTUCKET --- For Pineview manager Joe Clark, traveling with his Big League ballclub to Dover, Del. on the second weekend of each July has become almost an annual tradition.
That weekend is when the Eastern Regional Tournament gets under way, and in six of the last eight seasons, Pineview has ventured down Route 95 to represent Rhode Island.
Pineviewâ€™s best finish during those six trips has been a pair of third-place finishes, the last one coming in 2010.
