‘BDD Live’ Host Scores Exclusive with Top Draft Pick Aaron Crow

Thanks to Eric SanInocencio, host of BlogTalkRadio’s Baseball Digest Daily Live, the Washington Nationals now know how smoking-hot minor-league pitcher Aaron Crow wound up in Texas instead of our nation’s capital.

Breaking his silence for the first time since rejecting the team’s $3.5 million offer on Aug. 15 – and signing with the American Association’s Fort Worth Cats – Crow explained why he decided to go indy league rather than jumping into the majors.

Mr. Crow doesn’t go to Washington - and tells BTR why.

“I realized I’ll be better off in a better situation next year. So I was kind of content with how it was going in the end. I kind of knew nothing was going to get worked out, so I realized I’d be better off [going back into the draft] next year. I kind of made my peace with that,” Aaron told Eric in the August 23 interview – which was cited by The Washington Times and throughout the blogosphere.

“Honestly, I just hope for a better situation [next year] than it was with Washington,” the 20-year-old right-hander from the University of Missouri also told Eric, who writes for FantasyPlayers.com’s BaseballDigestDailyLive.com.

“The way they dealt and handled everything, the way they talked to me and my family… I think any of the 29 other teams would have handled it better. I’m just really looking to get into a better situation than I was dealing with the Nationals.”
