It's now or never for Jacoby Ellsbury

As a Yankee fan, nothing beats stealing a Redsock player and having him do well. That's why the mere mention of Wade Boggs still provokes a smile, and it's even better with a Boston fan nearby, so you can enjoy the wince.Ahh, imagining Boggs on the horse... nice, eh?Which is why Jacoby Ellsbury is so frustrating...Statistically, according to Baseball Reference, Ellsbury last year...

Why Aaron Hicks is an upgrade over Chris Young

On Nov. 11, the New York Yankees swapped backup catcher John Ryan Murphy for Minnesota Twins centerfielder Aaron Hicks. Following the departure of Chris Young on Dec. 2 (2 years, $13 million to Boston), Hicks was quickly established as New York’s fourth outfielder. A portion of Yankee fans opposed these actions. Young fit in well as the team’s fourth outfielder last season, posting...

Watch Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury prove he's still ridiculously athletic

He might jump over a center field wall this season As Jacoby Ellsbury struggled in the second half of last season, many questioned whether the right knee sprain the Yankees' center fielder suffered in May had truly healed. Now there doesn't seem to be much of a question. In the video below, Ellsbury shows the explosiveness that has been the hallmark...

Dear Cash: Keep Gardy and ship out Ellsbury with a lifetime supply of Ace bandages

The fracking aftershocks continue from yesterday's trade. It's clear that another OF will likely go before Brian Cashman dons his elf ears and does his annual rappelling stint down the tallest building in Whiteguilt, Ct. Currently, our OF population resembles rural China before the single-child rule kicked in. If the Yankee OF candidates debated, Fox Business News wouldn't let them...

Is Ellsbury’s contract already an albatross for Yankees?

When the New York Yankees made the reactionary deal to sign Jacoby Ellsbury after being shunned by Robinson Cano, they hoped the center fielder’s up-front performance would compensate for the inevitable downturn at the end of the deal. So far, the Yankees have been completely wrong and the chances for a turnaround seem only slightly plausible.Jacoby EllsburyPhoto credit: Keith...

JABO: What’s Wrong With Jacoby Ellsbury?

When the New York Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year, $153 million contract before the 2014 season, the team was certainly hoping for a version of the 2011 center fielder: a speedy, defensively-sound player with serious power upside. A prevalent thought was the short porch in Yankee Stadium’s right field might help him regain some of his power after injury-marred seasons...

Yankees might need even more from Jacoby Ellsbury in 2015

When the New York Yankees signed Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year, $153 million contract before the 2014 season, there was immediate speculation about the short and long term ramifications of the deal. Could Ellsbury produce enough early on in the contract to “pay off” the inevitable decline at the end of it?Ellsbury was arguably the Yankees’ best offensive player in 2014. Unfortunately...

Jacoby Ellsbury: ‘I Loved Everything About’ First Season With Yankees

Jacoby Ellsbury feels right at home. The New York Yankees aren’t playoff bound and Ellsbury’s season ended prematurely because of a hamstring injury. As the center fielder reflects on his first season in the Bronx after parts of eight seasons with the Boston Red Sox, however, he can’t help but be satisfied by how everything unfolded. “I didn’t know what to expect. I like...

New York Yankees: Teamwork makes the dream work

It’s hard to look like a team when the team dynamic is off to start with. By now we all know the difficulties the New York Yankees have been facing with the team this season, what with the injuries or suspensions to key players. But now I can say that I finally see a team again. I see a team that is working together to come back from a rocky first half of the season. Being on a...
