Where does Crisp fit in the A's outfield?

Here's a comment from someone calling himself "nasteelicious" in the Conversation of Wednesday's Box Score Bits blog: "No mention of Coco, Eric? The guy has been on fire since returning from the DL and Oakland is actually running him, with two stolen bases last night. Anyone think he can keep this up?"

In a word, no. I'm not skeptical that Oakland Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp can play well (though he won't hit .414 for long), the concern is if he can play enough. Crisp began the season on the disabled list because of a broken finger, played two games in mid-May and then went back on the shelf because of a pulled ribcage muscle. He's back again … but fantasy owners have to wonder how long they'll get to enjoy his services this time around.
