He's not the biggest locker room cancer, but he's been a big enough distraction that they're not going to miss him as much as they would otherwise. His numbers are also way down and not worth what they're paying him.....but they're certainly attractive enough to sweeten a deal for a team like the Dodgers to take the Crawford and Beckett salaries off their hands.
Crawford is just in the "always hurt, under performing, bad fit" category. He's been fine in the locker room and off the field.
Punto's just a guy. He wasn't going to stick after this year anyway.
