Ever since David Ortiz was put on the disabled list, it seems like everyone in Red Sox Nation has been buzzing about what the future holds. What should the Sox do? Should they sign Barry Bonds? Is the world officially over?
Have no fear, because there may be more positives to this situation than the giant, glaring negative staring back at us.
The biggest and best positive is the fact that Coco Crisp is going to be getting a lot of playing time over the month or so. He's said since the season started that he isn't comfortable not playing every day. He's had a good amount of playing time, but it hasn't been consistent. As long as Manny Ramirez is DH'ing for the most part, then Crisp is going to essentially become an everyday player.
