    How Ellsbury almost ended up with the Rays

    The following paragraph is from a pretty good article on How Jacoby almost became a Tampa Bay Ray.I'm providing a link so you can read the whole article from projo.com if you so desire:

    The scout almost could not contain himself.

    Paul Kirsch, then a regional scout for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, had discovered a skinny but athletic outfielder at a small high school in his area, an outfielder in whom other scouts hadn’t seemed to take much notice.

    He’d put in enough of a plug to get the Devil Rays to work Jacoby Ellsbury out — and then to select him in the 23rd round of the 2002 draft.

    If he had come up with the Rays, at least Softy would be on a Rays forum griping about him. That would have been welcome.

    Actually no, he would be saying "why did we sign Crawford when we could have waited another two years and got Elles,"

    Or, he'd be praising Ells like he does Gardner.
