Did anyone expect Crisp to still be here when the season started? It was particularly upsetting to see him out there and have Ellsbury sitting on the bench instead during the home opener. It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
The Sox should make a change sooner, not later. Any more delays and Jacoby would have a good excuse to be sullen about the whole thing. He's not a kid, and delaying his progress at this point is bad for his career, bad for the Sox and just plain wrong.
On another Red Sox note, I picked up Drew late in my fantasy league. I'm beginning to think he'll make a real good substitute OF for my team. He may even become more than that if he can manage to stay on the field.
