Red Sox Trade Coco Crisp To Royals

Posted by Ace Staff on November 19th, 2008 in Sports

The Boston Red Sox were able to free up some money, move an outfielder and pick up a solid reliever via a trade with the Kansas City Royals today.  Centerfielder Coco Crisp will be heading to the Royals in a deal for right handed reliever Ramon Ramirez.  Crisp split time in the outfield with Jacoby Ellsbury but was owed $5.75 million in 2009, too rich for a part time player.  The move also helps the Red Sox free up cash for a very good free agent market this off-season.

Ramon Ramirez appeared in 71 games in 2008 with a 2.64 ERA in 71 1/3 innings. He was 3-2 with one save.
