It's no secret that A's center fielder Coco Crisp has been playing out of his mind lately.
A player not known for hitting with power, Crisp is batting .333 with three home runs and five doubles in Oakland's first seven games of the 2013 season.

Those numbers which are impressive in their own right are made even more so by virtue of the fact that they equal Crisp's power numbers for the entire first half of the 2012 season.
That's right. In the first half of 2012, Crisp totaled three home runs and five doubles in 60 games, finishing the season with 11 longballs.
The season before that he only managed eight total homers, and his career high is 16 home runs with the Cleveland Indians back in 2005.
Could 2013 be a career year for Coco Crisp? If so, he's well on his way.
