Yankees: God these new guys are hot

Jacoby Ellsbury (Photo credit: Keith Allison) Last night, thanks to Jacoby Ellsbury and Masahiro Tanaka, the New York Yankees trounced the Boston Red Sox to a tune of 9-3. These new Yankees are undoubtedly helping fans forget the lingering blow from the 2013 season. But it is tough to get cocky just yet after watching the middle games in last weekends series vs. the Rays. As what...

Returning Ellsbury lets his play rile up his former fans

The last time a title-winning center fielder jumped from the Red Sox right to the Yankees, he returned to Fenway Park and immediately evoked sheer hatred … which dissolved into apathy by night’s end. How fitting Jacoby Ellsbury — the quiet, first-year Yankee whose personality couldn’t be more different from that of the chatty Johnny Damon — took a wholly divergent path...

Jacoby Ellsbury Reflects On Boston Marathon Bombing: ‘It Was Scary’

BOSTON — Even though Jacoby Ellsbury left the Red Sox for their biggest rival in the New York Yankees, the veteran outfielder still has a deep appreciation for his former team and the city in which it plays. Ellsbury returned to Boston on Tuesday for his first game at Fenway Park as an opposing player. Ellsbury certainly has moved on, but some moments from his Red Sox days, like...

Ellsbury Returns and Makes Sox Pay in Loss to Yanks

The Red Sox faced off against the Yankees and Jacoby Ellsbury returned to Fenway for the first time since he left the Sox to put on pinstripes.  Lester followed Buchholz’s lead and struggled early and often and put the Sox in an early hole.  The Sox bats couldn’t get much going against Tanaka and dropped the first game of the series. Lester started off the game giving up a...

Jacoby Ellsbury Already Becoming Thorn In Red Sox’s Side With Yankees

Ellsbury Returns to Boston

For fans, there’s nothing bigger than the rivalry between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. But for players? Bad blood may sometimes abound, but it’s usually not half as big of a deal for the ones out on the field. Exhibit A: Jacoby Ellsbury. Ellsbury returned to his old stomping grounds on Tuesday night when the Red Sox hosted the Yankees, and he seemed...

WATCH: Ellsbury receives boos in Fenway Park return

BOSTON — While Jacoby Ellsbury didn’t receive the Johnny Damon treatment, the New York Yankees outfielder wasn’t exactly greeted by too many cheers, either. Ellsbury received mostly boos Tuesday before his first at-bat at Fenway Park as a member of the Yankees. The former Red Sox outfielder said before Tuesday’s game he was unsure what type of crowd response he’d receive...

Jacoby Ellsbury Appreciative Of Red Sox, Boston Fans In Return To Fenway

BOSTON — Jacoby Ellsbury was thrown off a bit Tuesday when he arrived at Fenway Park. He called Boston “home” for seven years, but not since his stint in the Red Sox Rookie Development Program eight years ago did he enter the ballpark and head to the visitors’ clubhouse. It’s a life Ellsbury must grow accustomed to now that he’s a member of the New York Yankees. But while...

Ellsbury joins a distinguished list

Tonight’s Yankees-Red Sox game will have a little extra juice to it. Not only because Masahiro Tanaka will make his first start at Fenway, but because Jacoby Ellsbury will make his return to the place he called home for seven years. He isn’t the first high-profile player to switch his red socks for pinstripes, and he wont be the last. Here’s a look back at some notable players...

As Boston prepares to unleash Ell on Ellsbury, should the Yankiverse temper our anger at Robbie Cano?

For the last year, our usually unbridled Yankee fan contempt for the Redsocks has been tempered slightly because of a) the bombing, b) nobody expected them to win anything in 2013, and c) we were saving it for A-Rod. Tonight, we will once again remember why Fenway Park remains the world's largest roach motel for seething, trust-fund Harvard frat-boys and rich silver-haired harumphs...
