Report: Cubs Close To Trade For Coco Crisp
According to The Cub Reporter, there are reports surfacing that the Cubs will be trading Jason Marquis and Sam Fuld to the Boston for CF Coco Crisp. Last year Crisp batted .268 with 6 Hrs and an OBP of .330 thus completing one of his worst offensive seasons of his 6 year career. If this trade gets completed, lets hope he returns to the caliber of play he possessed with the Indians, when he had an avg. hovering around .300 during the 2004 and 2005 seasons. This report hasn't been confirmed by either team officials as of now. This trade works out well for both teams. Both would get rid of extra baggage and disgruntled players.
