Coco Crisp trade

I don't understand why Cleveland wants to make this move and the Jason Michaels-to-Philly move.

They'd give up their CF, a backup C, and two good relievers (Riske, Rhodes) for: An unproven but potentially similar LF with less power (Michaels), a reliever with injury issues who has had success in the past (Mota), a top notch 3B prospect (Marte), and a catching prospect with power.

Why make any of these moves?

Crisp is a fan favorite. Are they getting that much better?

No. And they're diluting their once-strong bullpen (Howry is gone already).

It just seems like they're too excited about Marte and it's the driving force behind this deal.
