Bobby Crosby And The Comeback

Jared Wickerham

File this one under "things we are talking about until we go on holiday". Bobby Crosby is looking to return to baseball.

So, we may have picked up a shortstop yesterday, but this news broke today:

Bobby Crosby, the former Rookie of the Year-winning shortstop who hasn’t played since 2010, is attempting a comeback.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Crosby will hold a workout for teams in mid-January, right around his 33rd birthday.

Once upon a time Crosby was a good-fielding, power-hitting shortstop for the A’s, but injuries and inconsistent production derailed his career. He played more than 100 games just twice in seven full seasons and never topped a .700 OPS after 2005, so at best some team might view him as a potential utility man.


What's YOUR favorite BoCro memory and do you think he has a shot at a comeback?
