    Ellsbury sits, JBJ starts in CF for 1st game in NY

    JBJ will be the starting CF'er for the opening game in NY. That is all....

    I wonder what the reason is?

    Not sure. Tough LHP on the mound too. Ells usually has good splits, but Im not sure what they are against CC. Maybe hes hurt again or its just a scheduled off day. I think Ells and Pedey have played almost, if not every game this year. We will find out soon enough.

    He's tired from stealing 5 bases against the Phils last night. 

     

    My first reaction when I saw the starting lineup was...  No Ellsbury?  He went 3 - 4 with the SB record,  and not in the lineup tonite against the Yankees?  Don't  get this decision, at all.  Also,  batting the kid(JBJ) against C.C.  Wish him well,  but I think he will be overmatched. 

     

    Hope I am wrong.

    Said tight groin got him benched tonight.  Too much running last night.

    Ellsbury strained the left side of his groin on his last stolen base on Thursday.

    I'm really sick of this guy. He just can't stay healthy for a whole season.

    It's too bad, he could be a hell of player if he was tough like Pedroia.

    Had to be an injury, and it's really too bad, he's been red hot; pray it's just the one game.

    I guess that team stolen base record was really worth it.

    I pray that Cherrybomb gets smart and trades him away at the deadline or before.

    Victorino and now Ellsbury. Let's see what JBJ is made of playing in CF, which is his natural position. I can't believe all the injuries already and only about 1/3 of the way through the season. Hopefully he won't be out long. Injuries do happen but some more than others.

    Well, it oughta make Bill happy that his "kids" are playing. Not sure I'd put JBJ and Jose together at the bottom of the line-up, though. Maybe put Ross between them. We'll see. Crossing fingers and hoping for good things.

    I'm kind of sick of "fans" who pile on players who play hard and get injured along the way. Maybe you hadn't noticed that Ellsbury has been looking much better at the plate recently and hitting lots of balls really hard. I guess if you were the GM of NY you'd unload half the Yankee team which is out injured. You may want to unload Ellsbury but I think you're a crummy "fan"  and in the minority at this site!

    I have always felt that Ells is somewhat delicate and injury prone. This is one of the reasons I don't think you build a team around him.

    Another reason is that he is not good enough to build a team around.

    softy, nobody's investing in Ellsbury and Drew.  They are here for this season and then likely gone.  All the investment is in Bradley and Iglesias.  How can you not see that?

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Sorry to see Ellsbury is injured.

    Much is made of Bradley's first 9 games of MLB, which is meaningless. He'll need time to adjust to MLB pitching, but he will get on base and steal bases at a good percentage when they need to be stolen. He will be an excellent defender. He's not going to be a pop and power guy, though he will learn to punish mistakes.

    In his mind, Bradley knows he's going back to AAA. This won't help him relax and perform.

    I see no reason to keep investing time in Drew and Ellsbury, though. 




    already making excuses for bradley in case he fails to hit...knowing he will be sent down should take the pressure off....what the h... do you mean he will steal bases at a good % when they need to be stolen???? it sounds like your new catch phrase
