    Well you got Crisp back! Hopefully they can get a new stadium and keep this current group of prospects together.

    Smith/Crisp/Cespedes.

    Not a bad OF.

    Currently it's better than the OF in Boston.

    Maybe. We don't know what Cespedes will do or how Smith will look in Oakland's pitcher's park compared to Coors. Plus Smith is a platoon guy.

    2/3 of the Sox opening day OF are platoon guys and no one is as good defensively as Crisp.

    It is amazing how much better Oakland is than everyone this year.

    Almost twice as good.

    It's kind of amazing Crisp finally turned into the player the Sox thought they were trading for 9 years ago.

    Yeah, you rarely see it happen like this.

    At least Marte was an even bigger bust.
