Crisp talks starting up again.
The Cubs have started up talks with Boston regarding CoCo Crisp. According to the Daily Herald, the Cubs did offer Murton for Crisp but the BoSox did not like that deal. The Cubs do still seem to be set on having Pie or Fuld start in center field on opening day. The Cubs are looking for a 4th outfielder with speed that is either a righty or a switch hitter. Crisp is that kind of player, although Crisp wants to start somewhere( but he has no say in the matter). Regardless, I think the Cubs will not have Crisp in cubbie blue anytime soon considering his asking price and the idea that Crisp wants to start somewhere. It seems like its not a good fit.
