Red Sox Star Jacoby Ellsbury Bolts Boston For Rival Yankees (And $153 Million)

A seven-year deal lures Boston's longtime center fielder to the Bronx.

Posted on

In a stunning free agent move, the New York Yankees have signed star Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to a massive seven-year contract worth somewhere around $153 million, according to multiple reports.

And that the result of most of his flyball and line drive outs to right field last season (indicated by the dark red dots) wouldn't have changed much in a different home park such as Yankee Stadium.

Only one thing is for certain: we'll probably never hear anything ever again about the minor fact that Ellsbury used to play for Boston and now plays for their rivals. New England just doesn't hold grudges like that.
