...sorry, but I don't see Ellsbury not having a chance to compete with Victorino's numbers this season. As a Phillies fan, I think I know a thing or two about Victorino...he's good no doubt, but he's not a sure thing and nobody can say right now that the players abilities are so far off that the trade would be veto-able.
I'm not saying I'd rather have Ellsbury, but I can see why an owner would rather have Ellsbury.
Basically, the 2 are comparable in SB, RBI, R, and K potential. However, Ellsbury probably has an edge in AVG.
Will always help in return (leave a link to your question in response)
