He Can't Take the Heat

It's Another Postgame No Show for Coco as Crisp Gets Dressed in a Hallway and Avoids the Tough Questions

Globe: Duel Doesn't Go Sox Way

“But he [Crisp] slowed down, just steps from the plate. Why? Not sure. Crisp walked away from reporters after the game, choosing to put on his shirt in a hallway. Catcher Victor Martinez, who applied the tag, also didn't stick around in the Indians clubhouse.

" 'I knew I had no play at first base,' Barfield said. 'I was watching Coco all the way. I just made the throw to the plate.'

"And got him. Or not, depending on your viewing of the replay, or which of the 29,614 in attendance you asked. What is clear, though, is that Crisp had enough time to make it home before the tag. What is also clear is that Manny Ramirez was not close to home plate to indicate to Crisp whether to slide. That, though, is not out of the ordinary for Ramirez." -- 7.26.07, Amalie Benjamin, Boston Globe
