McCoy Mural #19: Steve Crawford

Steve Crawford is a dandy and a big righty who did some scattered Pawtucket time in the 80's. He pitched in 49 games, mostly as a starter.

1982- Crawford is 24 and starts ten games, going 1-4. He pitched 46 innings, so, what, 4.6 innings per game? I know my gazintas. His ERA was 4.11.

1983 - Crawford's now 25 and he starts 27 games with Pawtucket, four of them complete. Crawford goes 8-11 with a 5.18 ERA.

1984 - Okay, so Crawford's not much of a starter. He pitches in seven games for Pawtucket as a reliever. Maybe he is rehabbing, who knows?

1986- Five games for Crawford, none of them interesting. He could have made tonight a wonderful thing.

Two things:
1. Screw you. You try finding two interesting things about a player that don't include anything about the majors or other minor league teams aside from Pawtucket. I have to sift through a lot of search results to find maybe one tiny nugget of information. AND FOR WHAT? Do you know how awesome this undertaking is? I do it out of the kindness of my heart, like Derek! Maybe in the year 2000 my genius and dedication will be recognized, but for now, you're probably better off reading one of the other million boring Red Sox blogs.

I am really looking forward to my next guy. Who wants to guess who it is? Hint: I'm going in alphabetical order.
