    Who would lead off?

    We need to find a leadoff hitter this offseason to play CF.

    Re: Coco Crisp in CF in 2007?

    How about this guys:

    Dino (prospect)
    Milton (guy who fenway may help)
    LArue (a solid backup to Varitek)

    for

    Crisp (CF wiht speed and can lead off)
    Clement (another bust pitcher)

    But for this to work I believe the Red Sox would have to pay around %-7 mil of Crisp new contract and a couple mil of Clements,but they can afford it.
    Give me that deal, oh and the cash too.

    Talk about consistency for Crisp:

    Lifetime before the All-Star Game - .328 OBP, .415 slugging

    Lifetime after the All-Star Game - .329 OBP, .417 slugging

    I actualy thought about packaging Deno as well when I read this thread.

    Acquiring Crisp may be difficult without cutting deeply. I think Milton would be a poor fit as a LHP who is flyball prone. The Green Monster would never be the same after all the dents it would absorb. I can't see Boston having any interest in Larue (Varitek) or Milton (see above).

    Actually, given the Red Sox projected needs, I think they would only want Edwin or Phillips for Crisp or we give up Votto and give them PR relief. (They would probably take Arroyo back.) I wouldn't do that from Cincy perspective.

    I'd try to work something out invlolving Deno and a reliever (Coffey, Majewski, Bray). Cormier would be great from a cincy perspective. I doubt Boston would do it. Maybe Cormier and Deno and Cincy absorbs the Payroll hit. I think Boston would have to have a ready replacement before they trade Crisp.

    Noway i give up EE or Phillips for Crisp.But Dino and a releiver sounds good if the deal I stated above couldnt get worked out.

    Consistently bad...

    I'm sure Rickey Henderson, at age 40whatever, could still give us better leadoff numbers than the guys we've been kicking around the board.

    Let's give him a call, and see if his buddy Jose Canseco wants to come pitch for us as well.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I think he may be falling into the trap of leaning too heavily on his high payroll to fix problems rather than really looking for solid long term solutions. I'd imagine after the relatively poor year they had that this year will really be a watershed offseason in evaluating Theo as a GM.

    I wouldn't be so sure that Theo is calling the shots in Boston. And if he is, I'm not sure he called the Coco Crisp shot.

    Crisp is absolutely not a leadoff hitter. Maybe if you have a crystal ball you can say he'll be worth that contract next year, but he's done nothing in his career (even 2005) to suggest to me that he's worth it.

    Or maybe some people are giving a little too much credence to a line in a Colorado paper? Don't you have to wonder what might be in it for the Rockies to start tagging Coco Crisp as a less than desirable commodity? Especially now that he has a reasonable excuse for a less than stellar season.

    I've always felt Crisp is yet another piece of the overhyped Cleveland system.
