[QUOTE]See Crawford 2010, without Agon and Pedroia 2011. Agon and Pedroia 2011 are Ellsbury 2011. Agon is the head, Pedroia is the heart, Ortiz the spirit, and Ellsbury is the tail. Put him in Seattle and the hyperbole will vanish in the return of career averages or less. Anyone not recognizing what Agon's impact is does not understand baseball. Not surprised to see focus on Ellsbury and off Agon. Agon 2011 remains Agon 2012 et seq. IF Ellsbury is banned for hgh or traded anywhere but NY, pilly or texas, Ellsbury shrinks while Agon remains Agon 2011. If Agon goes down long term with injury, watch the incredible shrinking Ellsbury take place.

Yawn... and baloney
Damon spent 4 years here hitting in front of guys who avg'd this per:
- Nomar (02/03) a .305/.350/.525 w/ 26 HR's, 45 2B's, 9 3B's and 115 RBI
- Papi (03/04/05) a .295/.385/.600 w/ 40 Hr's 43 2B's and 130 RBI
- Manny (all 4 yrs) a .315/.415/.610 w/38 Hr's 36 2B's and 115 RBI
had a season as good as Ellsbury is having now
Looks like 02 Nomar/Manny is better than '11 Pedey/AGon
03 was the teams best offensive year EVER w/ all 3 of them here and Damon hit .273 w/ a .345 OBP and 12 Hr's,
Looks like 04 and 05 Papi and Manny were a better duo than AGon/Pedey (or AGon/Youk)
Hahaha Softy, stats show him to be a fool again. Or at the very least show that Ellsbury is FAR better than Johnny Damon was in his 4 prime years here. Not a shabby comparison.
