    I'd rather this not be true. I really like Coco -- he does his job well, and is pobably the true Gold Glover of centerfield (hitting plays too big a role in GG votes). If he goes we have no one behind Jacoby in centerfield except Jeff Corsealetti. Kielty hasn't played centerfield in more than 3 years and he's been hurt a lot in that time -- I'd trust Moss in center before Kielty, at least we know that he can perform adequately there for a backup.

      I agree that Moss would be an acceptable backup in center. He played there some for Pawtucket last year, and at least in the games I saw him there, he looked solid. Not at the level of Crisp or Ellsbury, of course, but he got the job done.

        I think that the only reason you'd see Kielty and not Moss in Boston next year is because Moss would leave us with our only righthanded bat off the bench being Doug Mirabelli. That was the same problem that stopped Murphy from sticking in Boston.

        We so need to replace Alex Cora. It would make our bench assignments so much simpler if we could pick up a righthanded infielder to do the same job.

        Oh, speaking of, did I mention that Loretta is still out of work?

        Failing that, Chone Figgins is definitely on my lust list as a Sox fan.

          Much as I hate to see Coco go, I think I've made my peace with this (if it turns out that he does leave). I like Kielty, and I think we got him for quite a bargain. Redsox.com mentioned that Drew would most likely play center on the days Jacoby needed a rest, and Kielty would slide in at Right.

I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I learned that, I gave Jesus a chance." ~Ron Shelton, from Bull Durham

            He's on Houston's 40 man roster, according to MLB.com. Did I miss something?

              No he's not, he's going to arbitration hearings with Houston, I believe. He'll be their #1 utility guy now that Lamb is gone.

                Although I like Coco, Ellsbury has shown that he is more consistant and could be the next Fred Lynn.

                  I love Ellsbury, but I'd like to see what he can do over a full season. He doesn't have Lynn's power, but does he ever make up for it with speed. Think a faster Johnny Damon in his prime.

                    ellsbury is just amazing but i think coco's D is irreplaceable. his hitting wasn't awful in '06-'07 and he fits in with everybody's just have fun and screw around while beating everybody's brains in mentality. i'd hate to see coco leave. we should start a save coco protest

                      Agreed. Jacoby isn't going anywhere. We lose nothing by giving Crisp one last chance to establish his value.

                            Why not shop Coco for pitching? You can love Coco all you want, but if he's buried behind another player in CF, it's not doing his career any good. Get some value in return for him and let him blossom and flourish somewhere else.

                              You'll have to give up more than Coco for a decent starting pitcher. You're better off just keeping him, depth never hurts.
