The buzz about the internets this morning is that Crisp may soon be a Cub. Fuld and Marquis would be going to the Red Sox.
I'm not too wild about this...I'm glad to see Marquis go because he's likely a man without a position right now, but picking up Crisp would give us the same problem in the outfield. Instead of Marquis being unhappy about not being in the rotation, Crisp will be unhappy about not being a starter...or if we do make him a starter then we'll be blocking Pie yet again. I think now is the right time for Pie to start - if we continue to show a lack of confidence in him he will just turn into Corey Patterson 2.0.
