|Cespedes to A's|
The only background you need here is that the A's just signed Cuban import Yoenis Cespedes and it's possible Cespedes profiles as a big-league center fielder. Crisp is the incumbent in center.
Coco, take it away (via Susan Slusser at SFGate.com):
"I'm going to make all the plays," Crisp said. "If someone feels there's someone better than me, it's hard for me to believe. Unless he's a demigod come down from the heavens, no one is going to outshine me in center field."
Yes, the only way to be better in center field than Coco Crisp is to be half-man, half-god. Coco then laid down the gauntlet for his new teammate (again, via Susan Slusser at SFGate.com): "I'm excited to play alongside Cespedes - no matter what side that may be."
The funny thing is, Crisp is a very good defensive center fielder. As usual, though, his quotes far exceed any talent he has on the baseball field.
