According to Peter Gammons of ESPN if the Sox were to move Coco Crisp they would be looking for young pitching and/or catching. Gammons also makes mention that if the Red Sox wanted to trade for Hank Blalock of the Texas Rangers they could make the deal happen. This would depend on whether Mike Lowell could be resigned and the exercising of other options (Miguel Cabrera, A-Rod, Tejada, etc.)
Coco Crisp is a very affordable fit for a team being only worth $3.8 million in 2007 compared to what you’ll see other FA’s getting this off-season.
Also the Boston Globe reports the teams showing interest in Coco thus far are the Orioles, Braves, Twins and Athletics.
Theo Epstein has said he would rather keep Coco then trade him. Unless Theo can get even trade value for him. Theo believes he can work out a system between Ellsbury and Crisp that would benefit the Sox. Hopefully with Ellsbury getting the majority of work.
