Oakland Athletics Place Rich Harden, Coco Crisp, Craig Breslow On Waivers

Rich Harden, Coco Crisp and Craig Breslow have all been placed on waivers by the Oakland Athletics. What does this have to do with Boston? Each of the aforementioned players have been tied to the Boston Red Sox.

Harden was nearly traded to the Red Sox prior to this year's trade deadline, but the deal fell through after concerns arose regarding Harden's medical records. Boston would have swapped Lars Anderson and a player to be named later in exchange for Harden.

As for Crisp and Breslow, both played for the Red Sox at different points in their respective careers. Crisp played in Boston from 2006 through 2008. In three seasons, Crisp batted .271 and hit 21 home runs, drove in 137 RBI and stole 70 bases. Breslow played in Boston for one season (2006), posting an 0-2 record with a 3.75 ERA in 13 appearances.
