    Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    Rumor is that the Cubs are interested in Coco Crisp as an upgrade over Felix Pie. Crisp is certainly looking to get out of Boston.

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    They've been talking about this on northsidebaseball.com for weeks now, and nothing concrete has come of it. I think the Cobs are going to stick with Pie and try to keep developing him.

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    It doesn't have anything to do with Pie's injury does it?

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    It probably all depends on how Pie recovers from his twisted testicle.

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    Any idea what Crisp has remaining on his contract? If Pie is still a year or two away, I can see platooning him alongside Crisp.

    I've been laughing ever since I first heard about it. Can you imagine what kind of response Lou Piniella had when he first heard?

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    I heard they may end up trading Pie to Baltimore for Roberts. So Crisp would be his replacement. Crisp is horrible though, might as well just stick with Sam Fuld or put Fukudome in CF. I would take the Cleveland Crisp over the Boston Crisp any day of the week.

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    I wouldn't say Crisp is horrible, he just didn't hit very well last year. He stilled played amazing defense for Sox last year.

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    There have been talks about either Crisp or Roberts to the Cubs for months and months now. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of either. I would love to see Pie develop into the great player that I think he can be....with the Cubs

    Re: Coco Crisp to the Cubs

    Another bad trade idea here... Not a fan... Develop Pie.
