Ken Davidoff of Newsday speculates that Coco Crisp could be the player the Mets target. He'd be a decent stop gap in center field and in the lead-off role. He seems a little pricey for what the Mets want to do but as long as it doesn't prohibit them from filling others holes, I guess it would be ok short term.
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 after acquiring Chris Young from Arizona, but it’s not clear just how available Crisp is. The Mets and A’s have a very good relationship, as Oakland GM Billy Beane used to work for Alderson and had Mets vice president of player development and amateur scouting Paul DePodesta as his assistant. A Mets official didn’t rule out the possibility of acquiring Crisp. source New York Post
