Bogus Crisp To Mets Rumor

2:34pm: Theo Epstein says he hasn't been talking to the Mets.  Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe labels this rumor a fabrication.

2:10pm: Newsday's David Lennon confirms the Mets haven't traded for Crisp, implying that they wouldn't be interested.

1:13pm: WFAN's Ed Coleman reports rumblings of a possible Coco Crisp to the Mets deal, which would involve Angel Pagan.  It's not confirmed or official, but it's out there.  When I get more I'll update the post.

Crisp's contract: $4.75MM in '08, $5.75MM in '09, and an $8MM club option for '10 with a $0.5MM buyout.  Crisp has posted an OPS around .700 for Boston while playing stellar center field defense.  I imagine he'd spend time at all three outfield positions for the Mets if acquired.

Pagan, 26, started in the Mets' organization.  The outfielder plays all three positions and has a career line of .255/.306/.415.  In January of '06, the Cubs purchased his contract from the Mets.  He made the Cubs' Opening Day roster, but a torn hamstring knocked him out until July.  The following year he got the call in May to replace Felix Pie.  Then he had an unfortunate bout with colitis.  In January of this year, the Mets reacquired Pagan from the Cubs for Corey Coles and Ryan Meyers.
