The Athletics just released a statement regarding Coco Crisp’s DUI:

Coco Crisp was arrested and detained early this morning under the suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.  He was released from the City of Scottsdale Jail this morning and arrived at Phoenix Municipal Stadium on time for team pre-game drills.  The A’s are aware of the situation and take such matters seriously.The team and Coco will have no further comment until further details are available.”

That’s a lot of nothing, but what do you expect? For what it’s worth, people here who cover the A’s regularly said that they aren’t pleased. Which is also kind of obvious, but the team is thought to take this sort of stuff more seriously than other teams.  I suppose we’ll see if that means anything in the coming days.

For what it’s worth, the A’s were at the vanguard of teams banning beer in the clubhouse — both their own and the visiting team’s — five years ago after Esteban Loaiza was busted for a DUI.

        Thanks sock! That’s a gooder. I still got Miggy in the lead, though.

    Craig, I love the fact that when I jumped to this page the ad on the right hand side is for DUI attorney’s……some kind of magic algorithm at work or dumb luck?

      LOL I wondered that myself. The ad on my page was for rehab.

    I always use unsweetened soymilk on my Coco Crisp. It turns soggy in Scotch.
