Huh? Jacoby Ellsbury is Michael Bourn + 10 HR, 30 RBI, 10–15 Runs, and 20–30 points in Batting Average. Other than that though, yeah, they're pretty much the same. ;-)

You're also forgetting the 33% chance of missing 50+ games to injury.

Based on what, broken ribs last year? Like I said, I wouldn't fault anyone for taking Upton over Ellsbury, though I would take Ellsbury in this guy's situation given that he needs speed and Ellsbury is an elite source of speed. But to say that Ellsbury is "Michael Bourn + 10 HR" is totally inaccurate. I also don't necessarily agree that he is some sort of major injury risk just based on last season.

I, too, would drop Humber and pick up A. Sanchez. Humber will be going to the pen soon and that will decrease his value. I think you deal Hosmer for a quality OF (unless it's a keeper league). He's been doing well since he was brought up, but with Pujols already holding down 1st you don't really need him. Ellsbury is a good start.

I agree with pretty much everybody above me Ellsbury over Upton. He has more potential to have a bigger season then Upton.
Oh and if you havent grabbed Anibal Sanchez yet you need to. Hes on fire right now.

Help please?

Well, the deal is finalized and I got Ellsbury starting tomorrow :)

With that potent Red Sox lineup, I can see that he'll score a lot of runs, which I'm lacking and steal bases.

As for A.Sanchez, apparently he was taken just ahead of me. So he's gone :(

Do I consider Madison Bumgarner? Seems like he's still available. As for Phil Humber, I dropped him to make room for Andrew Bailey to return from the DL. With the way John Danks and Gavin Floyd are pitching, either one will probably be canned.
