Bourn tried to recruit Crawford

So apparently it came up in conversation between Bourn and Carl Crawford that Crawford should take his talents to the Gulf Coast.

"Yeah, I said something to him, but whenever you've got the Yankees and Boston involved, it's kind of hard. He didn't say he wouldn't play in Houston, but you know, it's kind of hard to turn down $142 million."

Yeah, especially when the Astros can't offer more than $14.2m...
