The placard above Joe Crede's locker no longer reads "Joe Crede." In fact, there isn't a placard above Joe Crede's locker these days. The space is blank - as empty as the locker itself. Crede's belongings have been removed from the locker. The Sox aren't talking, but word is the organization, sick of the way Scott Boras seems to have his hand in Crede's drawn-out rehab - some believe he would rather see his client sit than have him risk another injury - has severed ties. Crede is scheduled to get another "second opinion" on his back later this week.
