Crisp in 2012
Fielding is likely where Oakland sees much of Crisp’s value. The problem is that is also something that is hard to pin down, given that even the strongest chanel classic bags uk defenders of current, publicly-available defensive metrics admit that they have a long way to go in terms of reliability. Moreover, in Crisp’s particular case his performance as measured by metrics seems to vary a fair bit from season-to-season and from park-to-park. The general take of most visual observers seems to match that of the metrics: Crisp has a lousy arm and good range. What that comes to in terms of runs saved makes a pretty big difference in his overall value.
If you think that Crisp is merely an average overall fielder at this point in his career, then with his projected hitting, base running, and positional adjustment, he is probably worth around 2.5 wins (understood as “between two and three wins” rather than a precise number) over 150 games. If you think he’s an elite defender despite his issues with base runners, then he could be worth three or four wins player. Either way, it looks like a pretty good deal for Oakland.
But to stop there would be to leave aside Crisp’s primary issue the chanel flap bags uk last few seasons: health. In 2011 he played in only 136 games, and that was his most since 2007. He only played in 124 games total in 2009 and 2010. Health is probably the primary issue that kept Crisp from getting more attention from other teams on the market, as it seriously cuts into his projected value. It is hard to say how many games is a good projection for Crisp in 2012 — 100 seems pretty fair, but who knows? At 100 games, his value given the range of defensive possibilities chanel 2.55 bag given above is somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5 wins.
