Massarotti on Crawford: 'Wrists are bad'

There's good news and bad news regarding Carl Crawford's wrist surgery, according to Tony Massarotti of 98.5 The Sports Hub and The Boston Globe,
"The good news is . . . it's a scope," Massarotti said Tuesday on 'Uno Sports Tonight', meaning Crawford is undergoing less-invasive arthroscopic surgery. "Were it a more intrusive surgery, I think there'd be more cause for alarm. For example, when Nomar Garciaparra had his career-altering wrist injury, it was not a scope job. It was a full-blown surgery. So I think we need to wait and see."
The bad news?
"I spoke with somebody on the phone outside the Red Sox organization and I said, 'Here's the deal on Carl Crawford.' And the response was: 'Uh, oh. Wrists are bad'," said Massarotti.
"You never want to mess with a wrist with a hitter. We know the Nomar story, although certainly there might have been other factors in play with Garciaparra. Lyle Overbay had a similar thing in Toronto; he was never the same.
"So the issue now is: What if this guy's never the same player? Then what?"
Then what, indeed?
