Bits: Coco Crisp continues to run wild

Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Reid Brignac accounted for the lone run of Monday's brilliant pitcher's duel against the New York Yankees with a walk-off home run in the 11th inning. It was Brignac's seventh home run of the season. He hasn't played much since July, but he's only 24 and could be a middle infield sleeper in 2011.
Oakland Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp stole two more bases Monday, giving him nine in the past five games and 32 in 35 attempts this season. Crisp has done this in only 71 games and 275 at-bats; of the 17 players with 30 or more steals, all others have 428 or more at-bats. Crisp remains available in 37.7 percent of ESPN leagues.
