... The Sox May Move You Out of 'Mega-Media Central' Soon,
Then You Won't Have to Be a Highly-Paid Cheerleader All Year

"I can cheer lead with the best of Ďem, that's not where I want to be though." -- Coco Crisp

Coco Prefers Trade to Bench

"Like I said, I wouldn't be happy sitting on the bench. A lot of people say, well, I don't deserve it. Thatís understandable too, I didnít have a good offensive year like Iíve had in the past. I think Iíve proved myself that I can, when healthy, and shown that my defense is way better than what people thought. People think that my offense is terrible. Now it's time to show them that my offense really isn't. Went through a couple of bruised up years, everybody goes through that. Unfortunately I just went through that when I came over here to mega-media central.

"I want to play everyday, I think everybody wants to play every day and if you donít, you know, I think thereís something wrong with you. I donít want to sit on the bench, I mean, I can cheer lead with the best of Ďem, that's not where I want to be though." -- 2.20.08, Coco Crisp in Fort Myers today
