Crisp: I've always wanted to play here, so to get the chance to come here from Cleveland is like a dream come true. You never really think about the fact that you're playing in the same field as the greats before you, but now that I think about it, it's pretty cool.
Base_Ball: Coco, any news on your album and or your acting career?
Crisp: There's no news personally, but from a record label standpoint, I have artists that I'm trying to get going.
powdaman: Coco, heck of a catch you made in center field shortly before the All-Star break. I don't think the camera angles did your catch any justice. It seemed you had to run not only far towards left field, but also back towards the monster.
Crisp: Thanks, I wish I had some better pictures!
Forrest__Hester: What does it feel to make a play of the year in front of millions of fans?
Crisp: It's a great feeling. For me it's better than getting a game-winning hit. It's pretty much the best feeling that a guy can have, unless you're Big Papi hitting a game-winning home run.
soxfan688: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today, Coco. How does it feel to be a member of a team that has a realistic shot at making it to the World Series?
Crisp: Feels good to be a part of a team that has a chance of making it to the playoffs. Keeps you in the game, out there having fun.
Base_Ball: What do you think about living in Boston? Do like like the town?
Crisp: Besides California, this is the best place I've lived. I'm happy to call it my second home.
mtalinm: When you bat left-handed it looks like you are flipping your fingers up and down on the bat. Why do you do that?
Crisp: I don't know why I do it, it just became my habit. Now it's funny when I see it myself. There's no real reason.
riz319: How do you feel about Kevin Youkilis hitting in the leadoff spot, since that was one of the primary reasons you were brought to Boston?
Crisp: I'm OK with whatever position I hit in the lineup. Youkilis is doing a great job in the leadoff spot and I would keep him there myself. Plus, we're winning, and that's the biggest part of it. But if needed, I can always slide back down in there!
riz319: Where is your favorite place to play, aside from Fenway?
Crisp: PNC park, where they just had the All-Star Game that I missed. I would've loved to have played there.
riz319: Do you follow any other sports?
Crisp: Football. I'm a big fantasy football player. Shaun Alexander's gonna take me to the championship this year.
rsgal2006: Who is your favorite teammate?
Crisp: To be honest I like everybody, but if I had to pick anyone that I'd want to hang out with it would be Willie Harris.
nikegirl20: Is it more exciting or stressful playing against the Yankees, considering the history of the rivalry?
Crisp: I'd definitely have to say it's more exciting, mainly because of the fans. The louder they get, the more your heart starts racing.
Base_Ball: Coco, would you suggest that I keep you on my fantasy team or go for someone else in the outfield?
Crisp: With me being a fellow fantasy player (football, not baseball) I would bench me right now, but keep me on your team, cause I'm 'bout to get HOT!
ccrispbaybeex3: How's your finger Coco? I notice every game that you have some sort of guard on it.
Crisp: Fine, thank you. Just for precautionary reasons, when I get on base, I wear the guard even though I really don't have to.
law14: Coco, what would you be doing if you were not playing baseball?
Crisp: I'd probably be a Hollywood movie star, have written a couple of books, climbed Mt. Everest, broke the skydiving record -- things like that. Naw, just kidding. I probably would've been a boxer.
rsgal2006: What are you goals in the second half of the season?
Crisp: Just to continue to play as hard as I can. No statistical goals, but whatever it takes to help the team win.
Crisp: Well, gotta get going, gotta get ready for batting practice. Going to the weight room to lift some weights and get ready for tonight! Thanks for chatting with me.
