In response to Softlaw1's comment:
You cant deny that he was one of a few players in September 2011 trying. He almost willed the Sox to win the last game of the season.
He didn't "almost will" anything except a prima donna baseball team with lazy and aloof player leadership, which included him.
You have disliked him since he rpelaced Coco Crisp.
In fact, I stated that Crisp needed to be traded because of contract value.
You made multiple racism comments directed at Ellsbury in the past. Y
No, I never made any statements that said his race was inferior to another race. Since you grew up during the propaganda federal identity politics era, you don't even know what race is or what racism is. Let me give you an example of a racist statement from a mixed race demagogue:
They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them
ou are fraud who changes his tune whenever it works for you. You lack very basic logical
In fact, you failed to provide the details on how you plan to retain Ellsbury through his FA which starts in several months. You also failed to make your case why he should be retained and not traded.
It is you who are a fraud under the cover of one tune that is promoted on this site. It's no surprise that you resorted to ad hom and failed to address the baseball questions asked about a baseball player coming to the end of his disappointing Red Sox career that was touted as a HOF career with various comparisons to Ted Williams, Ichiro, Damon et al.
HGH and the departure of AGon makes Ellsbury's FA at 30 year old plus value at base 7 and 3 years, but the Red Sox are now saddled with the embarrassing contract to Shane (his value is only in CF). The Red Sox have the far superior value in Bradley, Jr, who will never be as popular as Ellsbury, even though he will be a better defensive CF'er at the OF position where defense is more important than offense.
The Red Sox should have traded Ellbury long ago, but they certainly should trade him this winter as currency in a package to net J. Upton with an extension for J. Upton.
You are blind and foolish then. 32 HR, 8 in September, one in the final game. That was much better than anyone on team in each of those 3 catergories. He is not a prima donna. He os quiet and gets along with everyone expect for maybe Youk. You make it seem like he misssed time for a cough. You have said things like he is no Jim Thrope or he would look good in an Indians uniform. You use a quote that is not racist, claiming to be a victim not to seem racist. For the love of God it would take the most convoluted trade in history for your pipe dream. On top of Upton is not that good and has attitude issues. Keep digging your hole deeper.
