Coco Crisp should be back soon

According to Crisps agent, Coco will be back in the lineup for the Red Sox soon. Coco had surgery last week to alleviate a painful kidney stone condition that developed complications.

How soon is soon? Who knows. He should take care of himself first, then worry about returning to the team.

Unfortunately for Crisp, his replacements have been doing well... Almost too well. Youkilis has become one of the most effective lead off hitter the Sox have ever seen. And keeping Pena in the lineup has become a priority for every fan who enjoys the long ball. When Pena sits on the bench and Youkilis gets sent to the bottom of the lineup, some fans are going to start screaming if Coco's swing is off even a little when he comes back.
