Here Come the Coco Crisp Rumors

J.D. Drew finally signed with the Red Sox, contingent on a physical, for a five-year, $70 million contract. It's been widely speculated that if/when this deal was completed, Coco Crisp would be available via trade, and the Sox would be a logical destination. As you all know, we're looking for a CF/LF and Crisp could fill that void.

Expect to hear a lot of rumors and rumblings about such a trade.

Just found out that Maddux has signed a 1-year, $10 million contract with the Padres.

There are two things about this contract that could benefit the Sox. First, this opens up another team, looking for pitching. I'm not sure what the Dodgers' pitching situation was, but they definitely have a hole in their rotation, now. Second, Maddux got a pretty fat contract; considering Maddux is in his 40's, the Sox pitchers suddenly look even more attractive by comparison.

Who would play CF for the Red Sox if they were to trade Crisp?

I think Pena might be more available than Crisp, unless we were including BA and/or Sweeney in there.
