Crisp mystery: It's not O's, could it be A's?

The Coco Crisp mystery isn't quite solved. But we are making progress (a little, anyway).

Crisps's agent Steve Comte got the ball rolling when he told the San Francisco Chronicle that Crisp had settled on a team. So far, that team remains a mystery. Many teams have shown interest in Crisp, making this a tough one.

One possibility is that Crisp simply remains in Oakland. But that is thus far unconfirmed, as well.

As far as the Orioles go, I may need a new crystal ball. While the Orioles did talk to Comte in their pursuit of a leadoff hitter, it appears Crisp is likely heading elsewhere. Someone with the Orioles said his name didn't even come up in a recent meeting, a indication they certainly aren't expecting to get him.

But who is? Just about every A.L. East team was speculated at one point in recent days, but one by one they appear to have been shot down as the likely landing spot. The Cubs, Cardinals and Dodgers are among other teams that have been linked to Crisp. But there's no evidence it's any of them, either. 
Word has been that Crisp prefers to remain on the West Coast, and that he wants to play for a winner. Well, if it is Oakland, I am confident they will be a big winner. But maybe not for a couple more years.

I wish I knew why the Padres aren't looking hard at this guy. He is exactly the type of player needed in Petco Canyon. Maybe his price is too high. We only have about 5-6 mil yet to spend and may need pitching. Wouild have loved seeing him in SD.

I think Prince Fielder is waiting to see where Crisp signs and for how much.

You are actually spending time trying to decide where Coco Crisp is going to play?

Seriously?

The world is waiting, Heyman ... stay on this one for us, OK?
