    If this goes down, it's an absolute steal for the Red Sox. Coco Crisp is one hell of a centerfielder. In fact, I think that if this deal is made, having Crisp in center for the long run will be better than having Damon.

    Meanwhile, I'd be glad to see Crisp leave the AL Central, where he has been a little pest against the White Sox.

    Winning.

      As far as I know, it is far from official.

      But IF, has the Indians management gone mad? How on earth could they Crisp let go???

        ESPN is reporting they have a agreed on a deal in principle, whatever the hell that means.

        I like it so far.

          Good move for Boston.

          Why could the Yankees not think of this?:grouchy

              Looks like there are several kinks to work out first. Let's not be overly hasty!

                I agree with all you BoSox fans-this would be a steal for you. Unless you give us Manny and agree to pay his contract or something.

                What are you thinking, Shapiro? Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  If Shapiro does this, can he please give his Exec of the Year award to Kenny Williams (who was more deserving anyway:grouchy )?

                    Didn't Boston give up Marte for this Coco? I think he, along with Hanley Ramirez, were their two biggest blue chippers.

                      Hanley Ramirez for Josh Beckett was a steal for the Red Sox. It's not as if Hanley was putting up unbelievable stats in the minors...The way you can look at this Indians deal is basically Edgar Renteria for Coco Crisp -- which is another steal for the Red Sox.

                        This would be a great deal for the Red Sox. Crisp is young and on the up. Not sure why the Indians want to make this deal, given that Crisp is very much a part of a young and developing nucleus they have in place. Anyway, Crisp is already almost as good as Damon, plus he's 6 years younger. A great deal for the Sox. It's not like giving up Marte is going to hurt the Sox anyway since I think Marte was acquired just to be trade bait for a deal like this one.

                          This is more rumor than anything else because there are no real details, but the latest from ESPN is that Marte and Mota will be moved and that Alex Gonzalez could be our new SS. Stay tuned.

                            3. David Ortiz
                            4. Manny Rameriz
                            5. Jason Varitek

                            9. Alex Gonzalez

                            Bold players are not on our team yet, but I do like that line-up. Crisp is young, he's 27, on the rise. The main chip the Indians get is Marte, who I really didn't part with, but since we're getting young talent in return, I'm all for it. Mota help the Indians off-set the hit they took to their bullpen losing Howry. I didn't want to Mota to be dealt, but I guess there is no way around it.

                            Good deal for the Sox. Won't say it's a steal since we really don't know how good Marte will be MLB in the future at this moment. Still, I want this official, Sox to sign Gonzalez and have Crisp at the top and I think our off-season was so horrible then.

                              That lineup looks a whole lot better than it did a day ago. At this stage, I'd rather have Crisp than Damon. Crisp is already almost as good and should continue to improve given that he's only 26.
