Moves By Dodgers Of Yesteryear

Well, we all know that there ain't much more happening in Colletti-land for the rest of this off-season (cries). But at least we can keep up with some former Dodgers and where they're headed!

But wait! I stand corrected; it's not quite completely moribund for the Dodgers, at least if you classify talking with corpses as "action." Apparently, we're interested in Coco Crisp, who hasn't played regularly since 2005 with the Indians. Yep, that sounds like a typical Colletti pickup to me. I'm guessing two years minimum. (We're also still interested in Mike MacDougal and the recently non-tendered Hong-Chih Kuo, reflecting our penchant for self-flagellation.)

More Left Fielders ≠ Better Left Fielders

Crisp actually played 136 games last year for Oakland. The article notes he hasn't played LEFT regularly since 2005.

He did sport an OPS of .693 last year, though, so it's not as though that changes the sentiment much.

I don't have the stats in front of me but I am pretty sure that Crisp has been in the top 5 of CRAZY for most of his career

Shit, FB. I make that list EVERY year.

Coco fucking Crisp? Are you kidding?

I've tried to stay open-minded this off season, but father god sonny jesus this is embarrassing and sad and maddening. We'd be better off with Johnny Blanchard than Crisp.
