Coco & Co

It would appear that the Red Sox could well begin next season with Mr Covelli Loyce Crisp in center field.

The deal is not yet finalised, but if it goes through as planned I'll be delighted to see Coco in a Red Sox uniform. I'm not talking numbers here - others are far better qualified to analyse the deal from that angle - but rather general outfield funkiness. Coco has long been a Baseball Desert favourite, and between Manny's bagginess in left and Trot's scruffiness in right I have a feeling that he and his jaunty cap will fit right in.
