Royals are Really Cookoo.

The Royals gave up a  promising bullpen arm for the enigmatic, for some reason always wanted, Coco Crisp.  The Royals sent Ramon Ramirez to the Red Sox.

 

The Kansas City Royals picked up the leadoff hitter they had been seeking on Wednesday, acquiring center fielder Coco Crisp from the Boston Red Sox for reliever Ramon Ramirez.

 

The Royals got Ramirez in a trade with Colorado before last season, so impressed with his stuff that they projected him to be their closer.

With a fastball that reaches the mid-90s, Ramirez is a power pitcher who seems suited for the late innings. He was one of the primary setup men for closer Joakim Soria and flourished in that spot, going 3-2 with a 2.64 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings
