Re: Red Sox acquire Crisp
Crisp is a very productive CF but much more replaceable as a LF. It really makes the Tribe thin in the OF but Shapiro knows replacing corner OFs is easier than getting a potential star at 3B where they have few prospects.
As for pitching, Shapiro is big on Sowers and Carmona whom both he considers untouchable in trade talk. I don't see Carmona as more than a 4-5 but Sowers should solidify the rotation sooner than later.
In any event, a good deal for both teams with an eye for the future for Cleveland (a necessity with their limited payroll).
