Spring Training Water Cooler Talk

Coco Crisp or Jacoby Ellsbury

  • Terry Francona has said Coco Crisp is the incumbent, meaning Jacoby Ellsbury still needs to win the job. You’d think the interview for the spot would have been the World Series, Ellsbury was kind of great there. Apparently, Ellsbury is behind Coco. At least CF is a great place to have a surplus of talent.

If Coco Loses the Starting Job He’ll Ask for a Trade

  • Coco has said he would like a trade if he lost the starting job. “Honestly, I think so because I want to play,” Crisp said before his spring training workout. “I wouldn’t be happy sitting on the bench.” Coco realizes that Ellsbury was swinging the bat in the playoffs and earned the spot but he wants to be able to get the job back.
  • “I would honestly rather be somewhere else and play than be on the bench,” he said. “But I’ll take whatever comes and deal with it and no knock against Boston. I love the fans. They treated me well.

David Ortiz’s health

  • David Ortiz had surgery on his right knee about four months ago and now Ortiz is in spring training and swinging the bat again. Apparently he is almost back to 100%.

Mike Timlin

  • Mike Timlin has said he “feels great, but needs to get his head in place.” Timlin will be competing for a job with all the arms available to Boston.
