Why trade for Crisp now?

I've seen in several diaries people mentioning making a trade for Coco Crisp to platoon with Felix Pie in CF.  The reason he wants out of Boston is because he's not starting...why would he want to come to Chicago to play in a platoon and play one every 3 or 4 days against lefties?  Why don't we see what Pie can do as an everyday starter before we go and trade for another center fielder who can't hit that well?  I'm sure we could find someone on the market during the season if Pie shows he can't handle the job.

Thoughts?
