We Won't Have Jacoby To Kick Around Anymore

(New York Daily News)
A welcome distraction during the quasi-Papal elevation of Derek Jeter this weekend would have been the opportunity to further razz Jacoby Ellsbury. Alas, a troublesome "hamstring" injury is putting the reprobate CF on the shelf for the remainder of the season. So, Red Sox fans will be unable to 'welcome' Jacoby again during his strides to the plate. Of course, this raises the unfair old canard about Ellsbury's durability. After all, he's played in 149 games so far for The Bronx Embalmers15 more than he played for the 2013 World Champion Red Sox. And, one could argue, Jacoby's absence at the top of the Red Sox order had a lot to do with them struggling to break the Valentine Win Barrier.
