Re: Red Sox acquire Crisp
Found this among the news reports from google. Interesting, but typical:
It is believed the Sox and Indians came close to a three-team trade involving the Cincinnati Reds that would have landed Crisp and pitcher David Riske in Boston, only to have matters fall apart due to Reds’ reluctance.
The Indians instead will get Michaels, who was sentenced to 100 hours of community service on Friday to settle charges that he assaulted a Philadelphia police officer outside of a nightclub on July 3. He agreed to a $1.5 million, one-year contract with the Phillies last week after batting .304 with four homers in 2005
