Maddon compares Jennings', Crawford's skills
BOSTON -- Manager Joe Maddon recently was asked to compare former Rays outfielder Carl Crawford to current outfielder Desmond Jennings.

"They're kind of two different players," Maddon said. "At the same age, Desmond [is] probably more advanced as a baseball player, Carl [was] more of a slashing kind of a guy, with power. Carl's got power, more a slashing kind of hitter. Desmond is more willing to stand back there and take a different kind of swing. Speed-wise, I don't know who would win a race. That'd be a pretty good race right there. Defensively, [they're] pretty close."
