Coco Crisp ‘hurt,’ believes A’s trying to prevent option

But now the A’s longest tenured player is upset and told The Chronicle he is convinced that the team is deliberately not using him in order to avoid having his $13 million vesting option for 2017 kick in.

“I’m extremely hurt, the way things are being handled,” said Crisp, who did not play in Monday’s 5-2 loss at Texas. “I’m not calling anyone names, but this is really frustrating and disappointing. This has been my favorite organization going back to when I was a kid, because of Rickey Henderson, and I’ve enjoyed playing here so much, and I’ve put it all out there. … Up until recently, it’s been tremendously enjoyable.”

Crisp, 36, needs to play in 130 games for his option to vest. He has played in 93 of Oakland’s 119 games, but is not starting against left-handed pitchers and manager Bob Melvin, who uses his bench liberally, has not been using Crisp to pinch hit. That has heightened suspicions that Crisp is being held out for contract reasons.

WSJ: Coco Crisp’s Rancho Mirage Estate Seeks $9.995 Million

Maybe *this* is where Primates should gather for softball next year?

Located outside Palm Springs in the Coachella Valley, the roughly 17,900-square-foot, five-bedroom house has an elevator, a game room, a home theater with a popcorn machine, a built-in saltwater fish tank and a gym. The master bathroom has an indoor hot tub and sauna.

Outside, the baseball diamond is scaled-down to make it the right size for Wiffle ball, Ms. Jones said. The 4.8-acre gated property also includes a two-bedroom guesthouse, a swimming pool with a built-in dining table, several water features including a man-made lake with canoes, a tennis court and a seven-car garage.

The listing comes three years after Mr. Crisp and his wife Maria purchased the property for $7 million, according to public documents. The estate serves as the family’s primary home; Mr. Crisp also has a home in the Bay Area for use during the season, Ms. Rosten said. The Crisps are selling because “they’re used to moving every few years,” and view it as “a new adventure,” she said. The family is looking for a new home in the Rancho Mirage area.
