Commodities Exchange: Invest in Coco?

Was it the show of good faith from playing in both Tokyo and Oakland, proving that he's not injured? Maybe. Is it the .333 average or .417 slugging he's accumulated so far? That's doubtful. After all, three games only shows so much. Is it the Gold Glove defense he provided all of 2007? That's much more likely, though it probably doesn't tell the full story.

cocoabeans.pngWhatever it is, at least two teams still appear to be very interesting in taking centerfielder Coco Crisp off Boston's hands. It just so happens that they play across the same city, too.

According to the nearly infallible Nick Cafardo, both Chicago teams are interesting in acquiring Crisp. The Cubs want him because, after making him virtually untouchable last spring, they seem to be lest than bowled over by the early returns from Felix Pie. The White Sox want him because even a baseball addict like WMYM doesn't know who the hell they're playing in center these days.

The Red Sox, however, don't seem to be sold on sending a man who may soon be baseball's best fourth outfielder to either team. Considering Crisp's relatively cheap price tag - he pulls in less than $6 mill a year, remember - he's hardly cost prohibitive. That's why they seem to be holding out for an offer that would include a power arm reliever and a hitting prospect, the price that the Cubs seem to find off-putting (at least according to Cafardo). It's similarly questionable whether the White Sox have anything near the pieces the Sox would want in return for Crisp, who'd likely patrol center at U.S. Cellular from the the next two years from the first day he got there.

hotcocoa.pngSo is Coco headed to the Windy City? It says here that he's not in the current incarnation of any of the aforementioned deals. Theo Epstein seems to be holding this particular card close to the vest, even as he seems to run Coco out into center as often as Jacoby Ellsbury sees the field, which could only be seen as having him exhibition for suitors; an expensive, in-season version of cheerleaders running laps in full sweat suits around the football team (if that one doesn't work for you, insert your own Freudian metaphor here).

Or maybe Coco really is hitting this year. That'd be a nice change, huh? After all, can any remember the last time both Manny Ramirez and J.D. Drew got through an entire season without a lengthy stint on the DL? WMYM can't either.

Oh. It's never happened. Well, that would explain it, wouldn't it.

As a Sox fan, I don't want Coco. I'd rather go with our young guys Carlos Quentin, Alexei Ramirez, and Brian Anderson. And, anyways, our farm system totally sucks. There is no one Boston would even want.
