You should have moved back to Cleveland.
Its still April, but 5 of 7 is nice. And Ellsbury playing how he is against the Sox is very nice as well. Seems like every game he has 2-3 hits vs the Sox.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
2007: Rookie year, he only played in 33 games. He hit .353 in 116 ABs.
2008: played in 145 games. He hit .280 that year in 554 ABs and had 50 stolen bases.
2009: played in 153 games. He hit .301 in 624 ABs with 70 stolen bases.
2010: suffered his first major injury and only played in 18 games. By far his worst year health wise.
2011: 158 games played and 660 ABs. He hit .321 with 32 Homeruns and 105 RBIs with 39 Stolen Bases. How did he not win the MVP?
2012: 74 games played. 2nd season with some serious injuries. He hit .271.
2013: 134 games played with 577 ABs. He hit .298 and had 52 SBs.
2014: Played all 22 games so far. He is hitting .337 and on pace for over 60 SBs.
So 2 seasons out of 6 destroyed by injury.
I must say, I was very worried about the 7 year contract to an "injury prone" guy defined by his speed. I do see the first 5 years of the is contract being a solid sign though, IF he stays healthy. After that you would probably see a good decline in production. Im sure his power numbers will start to increase as the temperatures rise in the Bronx. I could see him hitting 20 HRs this year by years end. Love him in center though and on the basepaths.
Its still a huge risk, and I wont be surprised to see him hit the DL this year, I just hope it isnt more than 15 games. The guy is a game changer and worth the risk.
Another Yankee win and Red Sox loss, get used to it.
2 out of 3 from the Angels is awesome, especially living 30 minutes away from anaheim. I get to hear am 830 host Roger lodge ***** and complain about it on my way home from work. Yeah!!!
Stay hungry and stay humble
