Gotta love the contract extension for Coco Crisp. Theo Epstein appears intent on signing a nucleus of young players for the long-term, creating economic viability and competitive teams for the coming years. The Cleveland Indians are in the midst of a similar plan, one they rode to greatness in the mid-‘90s.
Coming soon, Josh Beckett? That has to be next on the radar you would assume.
Speaking of Beckett, old friend Shea Hillenbrand seems to still be showering himself with class. Hillenbrand didn’t take too kindly to the Boston pitcher’s comments about “playing the game right,” which either means Beckett has been spending way too much time with Curt Schilling, or was ticked Hillenbrand started to head to first after a 3-1 pitch was called a strike on Tuesday.
