Great Insight on the Coco Crisp Trade

Jim Banks at has probably the best analysis I've yet read on the recent trades of Coco Crisp and the rest. If you're a baseball fan, read it. It makes me a little more optimistic.

Money quote:
The Indians are not the Red Sox or the Yankees, and they can't play the
game the same way. If you want to root for a team that can keep everyone and buy
everything else, then I'm sure the Red Sox or Yankees would love to have
you. But that's no fun. That's easy. What's fun is watching the Indians
outsmart those guys, and when they win the World Series, you'll know that
they'll have earned it by having made better trades, developing better players
and spending their money more wisely. In the end, it'll all be worth it. But to
get there, you've got to do what Shapiro just did.

The best GM in baseball, you ask me.
