The Rays almost certainly will pick up Carl Crawford’s 2010 option following the season, but the outfielder would be open to extending his relationship with the team beyond next year.

Crawford said today that he would be open to a long-term deal with the Rays this winter and said he “would like to be a part of” the Rays’ future.

He noted that that wasn’t the case before last season, but he has confidence that the organization remains headed in the right direction and won’t regress to its old ways.

“I hope we can get something done,” he said.
