I dont hate the move to bring in Ellsbury, reminds me of a better Damon. With that said, 7 years is a lot for a 29-30 year old who has some injury history. Plus that $ is outragious, but thats baseball for you.
The speed he can provide for this team is great though. Plus, everyone is saying he wont reach those power numbers of a few years ago, well, does everyone forget the short porch in right and how Kevin Long loves the long ball? Why do you think Granderson hit all those HRs while his averge dipped?
