Hell Yeah, Covelli. Hell. Yeah.

When Coco Crisp, then just 26, left Cleveland for Boston...I was one of the guys who thought that a new Red Sox legend was going to emerge. 

Unfortunately...I was wrong.

The speedster has been more flash than substance.  His actions of late have been suspect and, if you follow his Twitter feed...you've gotta wonder if the cat isn't just a little bit distracted.

Thursday night, the Oakland A's outfielder won me over.

Looking like someone right off the cover of Dan Epstein's great book Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s,  Crisp did his best Oscar Gamble impersonation and broke out the afro.

We'll all have to wait and see what Crisp will do with his hair next, but you know what my hope is.

Nothing.
