For better or worse, the Red Sox have traded Coco Crisp to Kansas City. Hard to say if this will work out. We know Coco is one of the best center fielders in the major league. He’s also lightning fast on the bases. He occasionally gets into hitting slumps, but he always ups his game in the post season. This new reliever, Ramon Ramirez, could be just what the hurting Sox bullpen needs, but let us not forgot that other reliever who was supposed to save us, Eric Gagne. I hope they didn’t give Coco away for nothing.

In any case, farewell Coco. I hope KC knows how lucky they are to have you coming aboard. It’s a shame I won’t get to see too many KC games. I’d hate to miss another stellar catch like the one below. I still can’t believe this catch.
