Indians trade Coco Crisp to Boston???

ESPN is reporting that Coco Crisp has been traded from Cleveland to the Boston Red Sox for 3B prospect Andy Marte and RP Guillermo Mota. There hasn't been an official announcement and apparently the deal is contingent on the Tribe pulling off a separate deal. The rumor is that a relief pitcher is to be traded to either the Phillies or the Braves for OF Jason Michaels or OF Ryan Langerhans respectively.

If this deal is completed I think the Indians get the better package of talent in the long run. Crisp may provide more to the Red Sox this year but from what I've seen of him I think he is about as good as he is going to get. I'd prefer Langerhans to Michaels even though Michaels has more major league experience. My main problem with this trade is that we are filling the most glaring weakness for a team we may be fighting for the Wild Card this season. There are supposedly other players involved in this trade and often the throw-in players end up making the deal. For example, Grady Sizemore was the last piece included in the Bartolo Colon trade.

I gotta disagree with you on this one. Count this dumb move as yet another in a long line of painful moments for a fan of Cleveland sports.

I blogged it here.
