Is Crawford a Bust?

I realize we are steaming towards the Fall Classic, but these sort of stories drive me crazy.

Carl Crawford has three quarters of a season under his belt in Boston and the media is already asking if he's been a busy.

I'm going to chalk it up to the fact that baseball is the only sport in season -- despite pre-season football. The Sox are dominating the media and the boys at the Globe feel the need to dissect the team in every manny, including scrutinizing the big payroll moves Theo Epstein made in the offseason.

What do you think? Is Crawford a bust or is the Boston sports media making something out of nothing?
