I am seriously wondering what one does with Jacoby Ellsbury. It is very hard to pull for the guy when he is the lead off hitter and he can not get on base. Should Farrell bat him in the lower third of the order? Should they try and trade him for whatever he might be worth? Or just stick it out?
I understand that it is still relatively early in the season, but, from what I can see he is way off at the plate and I am noticing a bit of a problem with him throwing from the outfield. Has anyone else noticed the double pumps and looks of uncertainty when he throws back into the infield, especially when runners are on base?
