Personal favorites that I wrote
Crisp and Gonzalez to Boston?, so says newspaper
2006-01-22 08:45
by Bob Timmermann

The Boston Herald is reporting that the Boston Red Sox are close to deals that would bring them Coco Crisp and Alex Gonzalez. That would be the former Marlin Alex Gonzalez and not the former Devil Ray Alex Gonzalez. Or in other words, the guy who broke the Yankees heart in the 2003 World Series and not the guy who broke the Cubs heart in the 2003 NLCS.

It's a multiteam deal to acquire Crisp, involving Cleveland and Philadelphia as well. Jason Michaels is believed to be ticketed to Cleveland to replace Crisp. Cleveland would receive Guillermo Mota and Andy Marte from Boston. Philadelphia would get either Arthur Rhodes or Rafael Betancourt from Cleveland.

Gonzalez is a free agent.

We're discussing this over at Bronx Banter.

Basically, if it all goes down as drawn up, Cleveland wins. Boston does well for themselves in center (depending on Crisp's defense), but, the way I see it, Alex Cora, whom they already have on hand, would do as well or better than Gonzalez at short.

Check the Bronx Banter comments for more.

I only said as well or better than Gonzalez. Go compare the two and tell me if you still think I'm mad.
