New Boston outfielder Allen Craig believed he’d be facing his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals, within a week of being traded to the Red Sox. That didn’t happen after the Sox placed Craig on the disabled list this week.
The Sox met the Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night, and even though Craig wasn’t in the lineup, he still had a chance to see fans of his former team — many of whom gave him a standing ovation. Hear more about it from Tom Caron and Dennis Eckersley in the video above.
