Although I'd like having Crisp as a backup outfielder, I can't imagine that Coco would have been too happy if that trade ever happened when he wants to get a better chance at playing time but ends up behind Carlos Beltran instead of Jacoby Ellsbury.
Why would Crisp not start over Church or Chavez?
I was assuming that Crisp wants a CF job since I haven't really read anything about Coco being willing to go anywhere for a starting OF job, seemed more like he was looking at just CF. He definitely wouldn't start in RF over Church but if he were willing to play LF again, he'd probably move ahead of Chavez. Either way, his goal is probably to end up somewhere that he can become the starter full time because when Alou is healthy, there's no question that Crisp heads to the bench. I'd rather not have a bench guy who is extremely unhappy with his role.
