Coco Crisp’s option is being picked up by the A’s

Coco Crisp

Behold the future of baseball reporting: Coco Crisp tweets his own contract status, telling the world that the A’s are picking up his option.  He says he’s happy about it.  Of course, in the very next tweet he says he’s happy about having season tickets to the Los Angeles Clippers, so the dude obviously has a low threshold for being made happy. Oh, and he’s single now too, so he might have gotten dumped.  Mixed day for Coco.

The option pickup was a no-brainer. It’s only $5.75 million. Crisp had an under-the-radar season due to an early injury, but he ended up hitting .279/.342/.438, stole 32 bases in 35 attempts and played some good defense in center.  There are a lot of teams who would kill for an 8 like that.

    Being single… pro baseball player… making nearly $6m next year… what’s “mixed” about that scenario, Craig?

    Infante and Gonzalez were signed at 2.5 mill each by the bravos. Don’t know how remarkable it was or not… But one thing is for sure, I’d take those two over one Crisp any day I think…

      Not if you needed a center-fielder….

    You are the 12th man on the Clippers. What does that make you? The worst player in the NBA.
