In response to pumpsie-green's comment:
People who use the term Fragile to describe Ells, ovbiously dont have a clue. Thank God (for Ells) GM's understand the scope of his injuries.
Thats your opinion and I respect it. However, I disagree. I think he IS fragile and his history shows it. There is variation in how people form their bones and connective tissue; some do it better than others. Its possible that Ellsbury simply has a constitutional issue with how his body makes bones and ligaments. Just speculation, of course. Its also possible that his reckless style of play, as Moon has mentioned, has led to his frequent and prolonged injuries. The point is that they HAVE happened, and they have happened a LOT. I don't want the Red Sox to assume much liability or reponsiblity for the consequences of them happening over the next five years. Let some other GM do that. Oh, and I do think that GMs know his history and that it will affect the offers from the smarter GMs. In the end he will get a big payday IMO, but not from our team.
WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE
so 2 major injuries is a lot?
this "ellsbury is fragile" crowd is FUNNY! it's like you people (what do you mean "you people"?!?!?) refuse to see the facts as they stare you in the face.
ellsbury is NOT injury prone in any sense of the word. put any other player into those situations and they would also miss simillar time. Whether it be Cal Ripken or JD drew....
injury prone is going onto the DL repeatedly due to day to day baseball activities. Players who get especially worn down from the daily grinds of baseball get the label of injury prone. NOT players who suffer a freak injury.
Jacoby Ellsbury is a lot of things (mostly good) but "injury prone" is not one of them. anyone who says otherwise is simply being obtuse or is just stupid.
Well MEF, I guess I am just in the "stupid" crowd. Where does that leave you?
Guess I will just chalk up your last inane post to immaturity.
