But if the Red Sox do dump him at a discount after targeting him specifically and giving up so much to get him, then they deserve to have to watch him play really well for someone else.
Man, you're good. This from Rotoworld.com moments ago:
Coco Crisp is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left index finger Monday.
There is a fracture in the bone that will require a pin or a screw to be inserted. The Red Sox haven't commented further, but it sounds like the injury he suffered in April never healed correctly. If that's the case, his disappointing performance is certainly more undertstandable. The Red Sox will finish the year with David Murphy and Gabe Kapler in center field.
