    Career averages aren't impressive for a leadoff hitter. But neither were Crawfords;) Career high season tends to intoxicate viewers. That said, Ellsbury is running out of gas and looks to be crashing from whatever he took at API.

    Where in Western Oregon?  I'm originally from Boston, but live in S. Oregon now :(

    My son's a big OSU fan, & we definitely have been pulling for Ells. since day 1 with the Sox.....

    The ONLY baseball fan in America, who doesn't get just how good this kid is & that he is still growing / learning / & getting better & smarter every day?????
    SOFTBALL / Softlaw!!!!  This guy is a complete tool!!!  But!!!  At least he keeps throwing up softball criticisms on a daily basis for anyone swinging a half decent (baseball knowledge) bat to hit out of the park!!!  The added bonus???  The guy consistently looks like a KNOW NOTHINGS baseball fool :)   :)   :)

    p.s.   PLEASE Mr. & Mrs. Board moderators!!!!   STOP banning this guy!  He makes the rest of us look like baseball geniuses! 

    I, for one, love reading this guys BS!  If you're ever second guessing yourself as to how you feel about a certain player???  Read Softone!!!  He will galvanize your thinking in the opposite direction :)  :)

    Softy attacking Ells is exactly like the proverbial chiwawa yapping his very pointy little head off, up at the Mighty Redwood from Oregon   :)   :)

    Fabricated, insincere dissent is trolling. Pretending, masquerading, feigning sincerity is trolling / not dissent.

    Ells. is only one for one tonight.....    bench him!  It may well have been the counterintuitive reverse pivot slap hit????  Hmmmm!  Those can't really count?!?  Can they?

    Cry baby, my post was censored by the NYT. I see your hysterical angry rant is still up, though.

    Ellsbury is 3 for 19 in last 4 games. Hmm, those can't really count, can they.

    You are very angry and hysterical. I only wish I could get your true indentity, just so I could put your NYT shill caseworker name to your rants.

    Gotta love Ells. So happy he's doing so well. It must have been frustrating with that injury, but he's certainly come back with a vengence. Nice to be along for the ride.

    Spot on Phil, wish I could be so concise!

    I've thought for some time now that softy's whole deal was a facade, can't for the life of me understand why someone would go to such lengths to play a devils advocate, simply to raise the ire of the diehards, all for a laugh? I'd place a small wager that he probably has another handle where he actually pens how he really feels and is among the most respected contributors...Talk about having too much time on your hands.

    I was born and raised in Southern Oregon. Went to the U of O. Ells is carrying the banner of the great State of Oregon and all proud Native Americans very well. I wish nothing but success for Jacoby.

    Your steel trap mind has figured me out...  I am a NY Times "shill," who has nothing better to do than reply to your mind numbingly monumentally ridiculous & inane posts about Red Sox players.  I still can't believe that I got this gig!  Who would have imagined that there were so many "shovel ready" jobs available to those willing to work on the pile of $h!te you constantly spew forth.  :)

    Perhaps when the Obamas get back from their little jaunt to the Vinyaad, the president will appoint you as "shovel ready" jobs Czar!

    *  You & Al Sharpton as "Race Baiting" intervention Czar!  :)

    *  You & your pal Barney Frank aka (MBL) as Czar over disbanding DADT.

    *  You & your sister Nancy Peloci as Demagoguery Duet Czars!  :)

    *  You & former Senator Chris Dodd as Banking & finance Czars!

    *  :)  :)

    You got me Softy :)

    Hated Payton while he was playing at OSU, as I was a Duck at the time.....

    He actually spit on one of our cheerleaders, as I recall....  :)   OK, she probably deserved it.....  :)

    Grew to actually like him toward the end of his career

    A very, very, impressive player; It's not clear whether or not he has HOF potential ala Pedroia (Who's an incredible overachiever in every sense of the word), but he may.

    I was there my Freshman and Sophmore years....ahem 1970 and 71. Graduated undergraduate from then Southern Oregon College in Ashland, OR, now it is Southern Oregon University. I became a Red Sox fan back in the day when there were only three channels on TV and the Saturday Game of the Week had the Red Sox on a lot, obviously when they played the Yankees. Yaz became my favorite player, I had a poster of Yaz on my bedroom wall until I left home for school. No place like home, in your case Boston, but if you have to be away, Oregon is a wonderful place to be. Beautiful rocky Pacific coast, two mountain ranges, lush Willamette Valley and desert. Hunting and fishing is awesome. I miss home too.
