Carl Crawford Accepts Apology From Red Sox Owner

Owner of the Boston Red Sox, John Henry, publicly admitted that he regrets some negative comments he made about outfielder, Carl Crawford, during the off-season and planned to apologize the next time he saw Crawford. The two met Saturday before batting practice, and according to Crawford, things went well.

Via Mike Petraglia of WEEI:

"When someone is genuinely sorry for something, you can tell," Crawford said. "I think he was genuinely sorry for it. I apologized for the season I had. Had I played better, he wouldn't had to say that so we just both exchanged words that were good. I thinke we were able to clear the air and now it's just time to move on.

The 30 year-old Crawford will look to bounce back from the worst year of his career in 2012, which represents year two of his seven-year, $142 million contract with the Red Sox.
