The budget is probably getting kind of tight.
I'd rather spend the money on a LF or 3b solution (Frasier filling the other slot).
Or perhaps even spend the money on pitching.
It does make sense to upgrade CF, but not at any cost.. Heisey/Stubbs is not the production we want, but they are still inexpensive, which provides value.
Chris Heisey (.315/.401/.715; .313 wOBA)
Coco Crisp (.325/.418/.742; .324 wOBA)

Seems like some doubt to me. Crisp gets the benefit of having played in a pitcher's park, but Heisey is also five years younger. So I don't think it's so obvious that it's an upgrade, if it's even one at all. And again, factor-in the money and it seems like a pointless move.
