Coco Crisp Links
February 8, 2006
Looking at my site activity logs, I seem to get a lot of visitors who arrive at the site looking for information on Coco Crisp. I have discussed him briefly here and here. One common search query is about Coco’s real name, which is Covelli Loyce Crisp, but people also have queried about his nationality (born in Los Angeles), and how old he is (26 as of November 1, 2005). As a service to my loyal readers and these visitors, let me also provide the following useful and interesting Coco Crisp links:
- Coco’s “Player Card” page, including lifetime stats, at ESPN.com.
- Coco’s page at Baseball-Reference.com, which tells me that Coco was first drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals but later sent as the “player to be named later” to the Cleveland Indians in a trade for pitcher Chuck Finley
- An article from the Boston Herald analyzing Crisp’s trade to the Red Sox.
- A Canadian Red Sox blogger (no, I am not making that up) wrote some thoughts on the Crisp trade before it was official and elicited some interesting response. The blogger was one of a dozen or so who used the headline, “Cuckoo For Coco Crisp,” and if you don’t understand that, read this.
- Here’s a good analysis from FoxSports.com, prior to the trade, of what they trade would mean for the Red Sox and Indians.
- Here’s Coco’s Wikipedia entry, which explains where his nickname comes from.
- Here’s something you may not have known about Coco—he recorded a hip hop song, “We Got That Thing.”
- Here are a couple of pictures of Coco when he played for the New Hampshire Ravens (now the Fisher Cats) in the Cardinals’ minor league system.
