2011 MLB Free Agents: Coco Crisp's Agent Believes San Francisco Giants Are Viable Option

Major League Baseball free agency is under way and teams are officially allowed to make contact with free agents on other teams. The Oakland A's did not make any initial offers to their current free agents due to their stadium situation, which means they will begin checking out the open market. This leaves players like Josh Willingham, Coco Crisp and Hideki Matsui all likely looking for new homes in 2012.

Coco Crisp's agent, Steve Comte, believes the San Francisco Giants are a viable option for him. The folks at McCovey Chronicles fully expect this to happen and the folks at Athletics Nation are resigned to the fact that the A's are in a horrible situation when it comes to getting any deals done.

The Giants are in a position where Coco Crisp would be an excellent fit for the team at the top of their order. He still has a ton of speed and would be an excellent table-setter for a team that will regain some pop in the form of Buster Posey. The Giants have a couple other more significant holes, so it will be interesting to see if they stick with Andres Torres or try and bring in Crisp.
