08:17 AM ET 12.18 | "We're certainly not punting on 2013," Sandy Alderson told reporters on Monday in the wake of a trade that shook up the Mets. They have in the neighborhood of $7 million to spend, so don't look for them to swoop in on intriguing names that are still out there like, say, free-agent center fielder Michael Bourn. The best, most realistic options are Scott Hairston and Cody Ross, both of whom will likely get multi-year deals as free agents. One intriguing possibility: Oakland's Coco Crisp, who will earn $7 million in 2013 and has a $7.5 million team option (against a $1 million buyout) in 2014. The A's have an abundance of outfielders. ... A Mets official didn't rule out the possibility of acquiring Crisp.

I'm eyeing my Fruit Loops. Cost me all of $4 and I know they're already stale when I buy 'em.

If the Mets needed a center fielder they should have ask for Rasmus from the Jays.

Oakland would be silly to let him go. Coco is good lead-off hitter and is a great leader in the clubhouse.

coco crisp would fit right in the mets team, but who would the mets trade for him, about d'arnaud?

December 18, 2012  08:32 PM ET

sacrifice its part of the trade thing, give up a good player for another player WHO could help the team chemistry,,

December 18, 2012  08:33 PM ET

the A's may be willing to listen to offers for crisp but its there any fair offer at all??
