Jacoby Ellsbury admits lineup demotion ‘a possibility’

TAMPA — The last time Jacoby Ellsbury started a game lower than third in the batting order, it was 2012 and he hit sixth in the lineup for one game for the Red Sox. This season could be different for the $153 million man. “Everything’s a possibility,” Ellsbury said after working out at George M....

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury's cliche answer to lineup demotion query

 Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury wants to talk to manager Joe Girardi about it first, but he'd accept a lineup demotion, he said Saturday. "Whatever helps the team," he said, sitting at his locker at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Ellsbury added that he'll also make his spring training game debut Monday after sitting out the team's first two exhibitions. The 33-year-old center...

Jacoby Ellsbury's lack of accountability letting down Yankees, too

It's a long way away, but let's flash forward to late September or October 2020. Jacoby Ellsbury, at the end of his seven-year, $153-million Yankees contract, is standing before reporters. Cameras surround him. Maybe he's someplace far away. Seattle? Minnesota? More likely, he's in the Bronx, because if the Yankees can't trade him now, when he's 33 years old, how likely is it...

The 5-step plan for Yankees to get rid of Jacoby Ellsbury

TAMPA — Let’s start this discussion by not being silly: The endgame arrives when Jacoby Ellsbury gets traded. No road map that will get the $153 million center fielder a plaque in Monument Park exists. The goal should be to turn Ellsbury, who reported to George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday after staying home for...

Jacoby Ellsbury has run out of high-priced Yankees buffers

TAMPA — The legion of self-loathing Yankees fans no longer have Alex Rodriguez and, to a lesser degree, Mark Teixeira to shower with hate. The Baby Bombers haven’t failed in the clutch enough to draw the wrath, Brett Gardner is a fan favorite, and Chase Headley and Starlin Castro are complementary players. That leaves Jacoby Ellsbury...

Ellsbury declines to immortalize himself with record chase

Jacoby Ellsbury has a commonality with every other human being on the face of the earth regardless of where they’re from, how old they are, or which way their moral compass points. He is going to die. While we’re on the subject, you are going to die as well, as will I. Last year’s Finnish wife-carrying champion is also liable to bite the dust one of these days. Arguably the...

Is Jacoby Ellsbury running more?

The Yankees have been running like crazy to begin the year, and Jacoby Ellsbury seems to be spearheading this initiative. In fact, the only reason that Ellsbury isn’t tied for the Major League lead in steals is because Jose Altuve swiped two bags on Sunday. There is a narrative out there that Ellsbury has been less and less aggressive on the basepaths in recent seasons, and most...
