Beckett and Coco
Back in the winter, who were the two new additions that excited you the most?
I’d say that if you polled the average fan, it would be Josh Beckett and Coco Crisp. At this hour, those are two of the team’s biggest disappointments, which in a large way probably explains why they are now on the outside looking in in both playoff races.
Coco is hitting .275 with five homers, 23 RBIs and a .325 OBP. Those numbers acorss the board are far less than you’d expect, even with the injury.
Beckett has a 5.02 ERA and continues to be a huge enigma.
Can these two players straighten themselves out in time for crunch time? I want thoughts, solutions and opinions on both these guys, because I’m having a hard time figuring out why both guys can’t at least perform up to past levels.
