Jacoby Ellsbury Called Farrell To Say, 'Thanks'

According to Scott Lauber of The Boston Herald, Jacoby Ellsbury phoned Red Sox manager John Farrell in the wake of his mega-deal with The Evil Ones. Said Farrell, "To his credit, he called to say thanks, and I wished him well. He handled it with a lot of class. He was very grateful for his time here, and he gave thanks to the way things unfolded last year. I got the sense he was a little surprised it happened so fast and the magnitude that it happened. We’re certainly going to miss him, but now he’s on the other side." We still say he gets booed mercilessly on April 22nd at Fenway.
