    Where Is Ellebury When You Need Him?

    Grady Sizemore strikesout with the bases loaded. He is hitting .220 on the season. Bradely Jr not doing much better. Red Sox always refuse to pay their own players who have proven to handle Boston and produce here.

    He's too busy counting his 160 million dollars

    I still maintain that for $160 million, the Yankees can have him. The Red Sox just needed a better contingency plan than a guy who hadn't played in two years and a rookie who can't hit.

    Always?  Then what accounts for Pedey and Papi?

    And then there was Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell whose re-signings didn't turn out so well.

     

    Think before you post.

    Ells is a Yankee now and his Stats are dropping rapidly which makes the "non signing" look even better at the moment.  We can find that winning combination in house with guys like Betts and through a couple of smart trades.

    The guy goes in a mini slump so the non signing looks better. He gets two hits in extra innings last night. So the non signing must look worse now? Then he''ll go 0-4 in some game two weeks from now. Then the non  signing will look better again? Bottom line, he 's a big difference maker.Hard to believe you think the Sox are better off without him.

    Ellsbury has not been that good so far.  0.4 WAR per Baseball-Ref.  Below-average defence.  Only one homer.

    Yes he's a good player, but the jury will be out for a while on that contract.

    In a few years it will be fun to revisit these posts that whine about the Red Sox not outbidding the Yanks at 7/153 for Ellsbury. His absence has obviously hurt us in the early going this year, but I'm kind of shocked that so many RS fans seem to think we should have been willing to pay that kind of price for a good, not great (IMO) player or that he will be worth it 5, 6, 7 years from now (to say nothing of 2014).

    He was a difference make for the Sox' line-up.  He also wasn't coming back here, period.  Anything the Sox offered, the Yankees were going to top.

    Don't think all the negativity surrounding his injuries in 2010 and 2012 from both fans and press alike didn't have an affect on his decision to leave.  It did.

    [object HTMLDivElement]    Very few athletes will actually admit that it is all about the money. But we know that it is. Sometimes they may be happy in their comfort zone and take a little less, but for the most part, money talks.

    Yeah, no.  There is not one person on this board that thinks the Sox are better off without Ellsbury.  Not one.  In a vacuum.  Problem is, the only vacuum in this situation was Ell's Boras 3000 vacuum cleaner sucking up 160 million dollars.

    "Red Sox always refuse to pay their own players who have proven to handle Boston and produce here."

    c'mon you know that's not true. They have done it sometimes, not others. 

    Most of us didn't want Ells to be signed at 160 million. You're not seriously saying he's worth that much are you? What about if he gets a bit dinged up and slows down and loses some speed in a year or two? 

    I think the critique you could level at the management is that their plan B for losing Ells, (the kids and Sizemore), was wildly optimistic. We are all paying for that hubris now, though this team has many problems now

    He has 1 HR and a .265 average.  I'm not sure that extra HR would've put us over the top.  Excellent player, but too much money.
