Strike 3 Looking

I got my K's on backward.

Three times as coo-coo!

Coco Crisp just signed a contract extension with Red Sox. He would have been under control anyway, but this avoids arbitration/year-to-year contract negotiations. The extension contains a $1 million signing bonus and salaries of $3.5 million in 2007, $4.75 million in 2008 and $5.75 million in 2009. The club option for 2010, which would buy out his first year of free agency, is at $8 million and includes $500,000 buyout and salary escalator provisions. So it’s $15.75 for three years. That’s only a little more than one year of Johnny Damon! I like what Crisp has brought to the team all-ready, and I think he will continue to do good things. Looks like a great move by and for the Sox.
