    Ellsbury injury

    Are we going to see this guy play again?  Or is this another out for the year injury.  I see Bradley for the Celtics dislocate his shoulder and he is playing the next game.  I haven't heard any reports of when or if Ells is coming back and if you haven't notice the Sox could use him in the outfield.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    He was off to a terrible start, just like in 2010. I expect his agent has advised him to take as much of the season off as possible, then try and put up numbers in his FA contract year, next year, which will be his last year in Boston.

    dont even bother reading softy's idiotic... negative posts.  you can't compare bradley's injury to Ellsbury's injury. Bradleys shoulder pops out and usually they just pop it back in and he continues to play....JE injury was much worse

    It also needs to be noted that Ellsbury is close to returning( a couple more weeks) and AB has been horrible and has seen a drastic cut back in minutes since the injury.

    I hope Ellsbury gets better soon.

    So they can trade his @ss to Seattle or Houston!

    This guy is pathetic. You can always tell when a player has Scott Boras as his agent. I wouldn't sign any of his clients to play on my team!

    Just goes to show you some Boston Red Sox fans wouldn't know a great baseball players if they saw one. I will never forget Tony C talking about how some Boston started complaing about his eye injury three days after it happen. Some fans are just plain jerks.

    I hope he comes back soon, when at 100%, then rakes the remainder of 12 and all of 13. Then I hope he goes to a team and a city where he is appreciated. Meanwhile BC will replace him in centerfield with the likes of Byrd. What a joke.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    He should be back fairly soon, or at least ready to start a rehab assignment.  I imagine we would have heard by now if anything was torn that would have required season ending surgery, but won't know for certain until he starts his rehab assignment (see Kalish's 2011 season).  Looks like we dodged a bullet there.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    There are obviously different degrees of shoulder separations.  Bradley's shoulder pops out all the time and the training staff puts it back in.  Ells injury came from a 225 pounf falling on it with all his weight while he was in an awkward vulnerable position.

    It's like the difference between a guy that pulled a muscle in his back and a guy that broke his back.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    I wouldn't want to trade Ellsbury, he is our best outfielder by far.  I know Boros is his agent but if he gets back at 100% our team is much better defensively and offensively an actual lead off hitter with great speed.  Our outfield will then have some depth and flexability with Ells, Ross, Sweeney, Byrd.  I think we could say good bye to Dmac even though Byrd isn't a huge upgrade.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    The "hype" is bigger than the player.

    Has no throwing arm. Take away his speed and he is a below average fielder. Strikes out too much for a leadoff hitter. The shoulder thing is the latest in a string of injuries that make him expendable.

    I don't see this team going anywhere without a pitching upgrade. This guy has some trade value becuase of his age and the good season he had last year. Get something for him now before he is like Youkilis, worthless as far as trade value goes. We have Byrd, and although he is not a long term solution, he and Sweeney could rotate and give the Sox better defense, and good offense, maybe we sacrifice a little speed and power....but Boston never plays a running game anyway, and we have enough power in the lineup.

    ......what....the.....hell are you talking about?? take away any OF'ers speed and their a below average fielder..

    ells has had 2 major injuries in his MLB career and other than that has been extremely durable..

    byrd & sweeney will not give you better defense than ellsbury... he did win a gold Glove after all..

    plus he gives you a force on the base paths and an unreal leadoff guy.. don't trade him, PAY HIM!

    The guy was the league's MVP among position players last year.  That's good isn't it?

    Ells injury was 4 weeks ago today. he has started to put weight on his shoulder, expects to start rehab soon but no timetable.  6-8 weeks, seems it will be closer to 8.

    Yeah! What HE said! 

    "Take away his speed and he's a below average fielder"?  Give your head a good, hard shake.

    thats like saying "take away big papis eyes and hes a below average hitter" speed is 90% of an OF'ers defense.. you can't make a play on a ball you can't get to... the same as a batter can't hit what he cant see.

    Zilla are you kidding me. " Take away his speed"  Are you really that stupid.  His speed is why he is a great player.  Add the power he showed last season and you have a MVP candidate.  I may have to block you after this post but I like entertainment.  WOW!!!!

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    Production isn't measured over one season. Ellsbury is the biggest prima donna in Red Sox history. His cheerleaders have painted themselves into the Ted Williams corner. Ellsbury has been a big loser for the Red Sox, when he's not on the shelf. Beckett has been a winner, which is more than can be said for Ellsbury. Overrated and seeking his FA Crawbust contract, which won't be paid in Boston.

    Re: Ellsbury injury

    Ellsbury, Pedroia, Middlebrooks, and Lavarnaway.  That is the core of your team for the next 5 years.

    Ellsbury is the best of the 4.

    He'll be back when his shoulder heals - there isn't anything else he can do.  If you have an injury, it is easy to type on a computer while drinking a Stroh's Light - but baseball players actually need a separated shoulder to heal.

    Of course if we took away Ellsbury's speed and his hand-eye coordination he would really stink.

    Likewise, if you took away Charlize Theron's perfect body and gorgeous face - she would be ugly.
