Crisp, 33, hit .259 with a .325 OBP, 11 home runs and 46 RBI and 39 stolen bases in 455 at-bats for Oakland in 2012 – he hit .265 against right-handed pitching, .244 against left-handed pitching.
Crisp is entering the final year of a two-year, $14 million contract he signed with the A’s before the 2012 season. The A’s hold a $7.5 million option on Crisp for 2014 with a $1 million buyout.
Michael Baron, ContributorThe Mets need two things in the outfield: power and speed. The Mets were too station-to-station up and down their lineup (i.e.: singles hitters), and acquiring both of those assets will go a long way towards fixing those problems. However, it’s going to be hard to find that combination in one player. But acquiring a player like (but not necessarily) Crisp, who gets on base, steals, and is a good first-to-third threat should be qualities the Mets are interested in adding to the outfield this winter.
