Coco Crisp packed a half-season of power into one week

A’s center fielder Coco Crisp is off to a great start, hitting .333 with three homers and five doubles in seven games. Crisp isn’t exactly known as a slugger and our own D.J. Short passes along this crazy stat that puts his power binge in context:

During the first half of last season Crisp played 60 games and came to the plate 247 times, and he totaled … three homers and five doubles.

Or, put another way, if Crisp goes homer-less and double-less for the next 53 games and 214 plate appearances he’d match his exact totals from the first half of last season. Personally, I think he should try to do it. Probably wouldn’t even be that hard, except for the part about convincing manager Bob Melvin not to bench him.

    I questioned billy beane’s reasoning behind signing crisp for 2 years last offseason. Don’t question Billy Beane
