AN Podcast Ep. 4: Coco Crisp and the Oakland A's outfield

Welcome to the Athletics Nation Podcast! Tune out the rest of the world for half an hour while Phil Naessens and I take you through the world of Oakland A's baseball. With spring training drawing closer, we take a look at the state of the A's outfield. In particular, where does Coco Crisp fit in, for better or for worse? Who else plays left field when he's not in the lineup? And what can we expect from Billy Burns and Josh Reddick?

Crisp and Butler won't kill the A's in 2016

Previous World Series winners had their own version of the double play machine. We are all too aware of the two seemingly wasted contracts on the A's payroll. Billy Butler (2/$20) and Coco Crisp (1/$11 with a vesting option) are a constant source of distress on AN. But should we really worry about these two players? I'm in love with the...Canha? The first reason to ease your worries about the two players is the fact that the former isn't a primary option for the A's going forward. With Canha presumably manning left, Burns in center, and Reddick in right, any contribution from Crisp is...
