Jacoby Ellsbury is headed to The Bronx. According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, Ellsbury has agreed to a seven-year, $153 million dollar contract which is pending a physical. Following a solid statistical year (.298, 9 HRs, 53 RBIs, 52 SBs) which resulted in a World Series victory, Ellsbury capitalized in a big way in free agency with a deal that is $11 million more than what Carl Crawford signed with the Red Sox in December 2010. And speaking of the Sox, how are BoSox fans feeling about Jacoby's decision to go over to the Evil Empire? Wait, wait, let's guess: REALLY PISSED OFF! Right?
Earlier today, the Yankees made their five-year, $85 million signing of catcher Brian McCann official and plan on introducing him in a press conference on Thursday.
