A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free agent center fielder Coco Crisp has agreed to a two-year deal to return to the Oakland Athletics. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't made a formal announcement. ESPN was first to report Tuesday that Crisp, who had hoped to keep playing on the West Coast, would stay put with the A's. The 32-year-old Crisp has batted .269 with 16 home runs, 92 RBIs, nine triples and 81 stolen bases in his two seasons with Oakland, which is in rebuilding mode in hopes of being able to relocate to San Jose and build a new ballpark. General manager Billy Beane has unloaded several star players in recent weeks, including starting pitchers Gio Gonzalez and Trevor Cahill.

His afro...

The BP First Take: Wednesday, January 4 by Daniel Rathman

Although the move does seem a bit out of left field for a team coming off a fire sale, it’s actually a sensible one. Crisp will earn $6 million in 2012 and $7 million 2013, before the A...
