So far tonight Ellsbury has used his wheels really well... getting a triple that looked easy on a hit to center and then stealing 2nd and 3rd after a walk. On the season now (and playing most days), he's hitting .278 with an OBP of .375, 3HRs, 34 Runs, 16 RBIs, and a near-perfect 18-for-19 on SBs. In the pre-season Median Draft Report, he was around 150th.
The runs, steals, and OBP are all excellent. The others are fairly mediocre but he hurts you much less than most speedsters. So has he increased his value in people's eyes? Stayed about the same? Or is he overrated with some East Coast bias?
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
