Ellsbury Still In The Sights Of The Evil Empire

The Horror!
According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, The Bronx Embalmers are still targeting Jacoby Ellsbury as one of three free-agent outfielders. While Shin-Soo Choo and Carlos Beltran are "1" and 1A" on their radar, Ellsbury is "a hair behind the other two stars". Now that the underwhelming Curtis Granderson has declined the Empire's $14.1 million qualifying offer (much to the delight of The Pinstriped Posers), they are free to spend like no luxury tax threshold even exists. Not that we ever believed their phony desire to stay under the cap. Let's hope if Jacoby does leave, he heads to the Pacific Northwest and not to The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street.
