NYY 'Think' Ellsbury Will Be Ready Opening Day

He Who Will Be Booed On April 22nd
As we all know, former Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has a long history of injury woes. To be fair, most were freak occurrences—like being hit by the freight train also known as Adrian Beltre. But denizens of The Evil Empire have got to be a little concerned when a minor calf injury has ballooned into possibly missing Opening Day. According to Empire GM Brian Cashman, the Yankees "...think he will be ready [for Opening Day], as long as he's feeling good and he's healthy." Uh-huh. Looks like Ichiro Suzuki in center.
