Crisp is coming to town

Ok, so to update, the Sox have (finally) acquired Coco Crisp. Personally, I think this is a pretty good move - the Sox are getting a lead-off hitter and center fielder that they desperately needed, plus the guy is only 26 years old and is sure to mature into a great player. I'm sure Crisp will thrive in Fenway's environment, and will give the Sox more of a competitive edge. Also, according to The Florida Sun-Sentinel, shortstop Alex Gonzalez is also close to joining the Sox, pending a physical. At $3 million, that's a pretty good deal for the Sox, who are in need of an everyday shortstop (Alex Cora is a great utility player, but I don't think he's ready to be a staple at shortstop).

Only 2 more months til MLB opening day! Stay tuned.
