Cuckoo for Coco?
Not really. A Mets official chuckled and said no when asked if the team had traded for Red Sox outfielder Coco Crisp, as had been rumored. The Mets need an outfielder, but they want to see what they have in spring sensation Angel Pagan and whether Endy Chavez is healthy enough to play against righties in Moises Alou's absence. They entered spring training needed a righthanded bat in the outfielder, and they still do. But they expect Alou to be back at some point.
UPDATE: Pagan just hit a two-run home run. He's en fuego.
