Just heard from Margie Ellsbury, Jacoby's mom, and yes, she's happy that her son is still with the Sox.

"I'm glad it's finally settled,'' she said in an e-mail, "and our boys (Jacoby, Clay, Jed) got to stay in Boston.''

Clay is Clay Buchholz, of course, while Jed is Jed Lowrie.

"Since the boys are staying,'' Margie wrote, "I wore my Red Sox shirt to work today. GO RED SOX.''

I have yet to connect with Jacoby, by either phone or e-mail, but Ian Browne over at MLB.com caught him yesterday, and Jacoby expressed satisfaction that he is staying here and looking forward to competing with Coco Crisp for the center field job.
