    Re: Coco Crisp in CF in 2007?

    I don't think you're crazy at all. You're seeing exactly what the Red Sox saw in him before they acquired him, and why I find it so hard to believe that they would abandon their own evaluation of a 26 year old player less than a year later, after an injury depleted season. Unless they're afraid the injury will have a long term effect, or that his experience of the past year has soured him on playing in Boston to the point of no return, it would be stupid. They trusted their evaluation of him enough to trade two very good prospects for him less than a year ago. There is no valid reason for them not to continue to trust it now.
    Sounds eerily similar to what the Reds did with some other 26 year old outfielder this year, wouldn't you say? I'm guessing the Sox won't make the same mistake as Krivsky, unless they do in fact seriously pursue Andruw Jones this winter.

    I wouldn't get worked up either way if the Reds acquired Crisp. However, I imagine a smart GM could find a player to put up similar numbers next season at a much lower price.

    I'd look to make a sickeningly huge splash in the FA pitching department. Yeah, it's risky, but there are no other choices for acquiring the pitching the Reds need at the moment.

    Go dumpster diving for most of the offense--maybe shell out a bit (in trade) for some power. Promote the minor leaguers very, very aggressively.
