In Case You Were Hoping for Coco Crisp

Chicago Cubs

Which would be kind of weird (sure, great defense, but won’t hit worth a lick), you can stop hoping.

Confirmed: Oakland is closing in on a deal with outfielder Coco Crisp. The A’s should have solid pitching and defense… Buster Olney.

It looks like he’s going to get about $5 million on a one-year deal, with an option year thereafter. Byrd, Podsednik, Ankiel… the remaining free agent options for the Cubs are just so exciting, aren’t they?
