Quick Hits: Dodgers, Crawford, Yankees, Wells

Here's today's look around the majors as the Red Sox take the field in Boston and look to extend their winning streak to seven games..

  • The Dodgers didn't know exactly what they were getting when they acquired Carl Crawford in last year's blockbuster deal, but the early returns are promising now that he is back in action.  In fact, one scout told Buster Olney of ESPN.com (on Twitter) that he is greatly impressed with what he's seen in 2013 and his stopwatch times to first are the fastest they've been since his early years with the Rays.
  • On the other coast, Vernon Wells is looking like his old self with the Yankees, writes MLB.com's Chris Toman.  To manager Joe Girardi, the veteran looks similar to his time in Toronto where he was a three-time All-Star.
  • In an interview with ESPN.com (video link), former big league outfielder Moises Alou said that he enjoys his current job as GM for a team in the Dominican Republic and hasn't been swayed by MLB job offers that has come his way.
