Jacoby Ellsbury and the Red Sox reached agreement on a one-year, $9 million deal. Ellsbury was limited to only 74 games in 2012, yet ended up with around a million dollar raise for 2013. Of course, Jacoby is setting himself up for a Boras-inspired free agent haul next year. Hopefully, this will result in a mammoth walk year in 2013, while we set our sights on Jackie Bradley, Jr. as the centerfielder of the future.
