We at Yankees Truth will be the first to admit that we were skeptical about the signing of Jacoby Ellsbury. We didn’t think he was worth so much money, and we questioned him as a leadoff man. We are happy to report how wrong we were so far. Ells has been tearing it up and playing good D. More importantly, he has become a nemesis of the Red Sock team, which is important. Perhaps he carries a grudge because the Sock management would not pay to keep him. Whatever it is, it’s working.
We happy to have J-Ells on the team, and we hope it continues.
