Yankees buy happiness

Usually, a day or two after a $486 million spending spree, most people would experience a moment when they’d wonder if maybe they went a wee bit overboard.The guess here is that there’s not much hand-wringing occurring in the Steinbrenners’ mansions right now.Based on the early returns of the 2014 season, the $486 million spent by the Yankees to acquire Jacoby Ellsbury, Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran looks awfully shrewd. And those same early returns make the Red Sox’ own fiscal restraint look like money thrown to the wind.

Rapid Reaction: Red Sox 5, Yankees 1

BOSTON -- A sticky situation for the Yankees tonight as Michael Pineda gets tossed for going to his neck, facing a possible suspension and further depleting a starting rotation already reduced by one Ivan Nova. In another episode of Yankees-Red Sox Bizarro Baseball, Pineda lasted just 1 2/3 innings before getting the heave-ho. The Yankees never got started against John Lackey, a pitcher they usually own, and just like that, all the good feelings engendered by Tuesday's 9-3 win on Jacoby Ellsbury Night were wiped out by Tar-Gate, chapter two.

Coffee and Clippings: Jacoby Ellsbury stars in return to Fenway Park

Tim Britton (@TimBritton) of the Providence Journal writes that Jacoby Ellsbury stars in his return to Fenway as the Yankees beat the Red Sox 9-3… Jacoby Ellsbury is not the type to gloat. Ellsbury’s outward persona is even-keel, sometimes frustratingly so. Before Tuesday’s game, he hardly acknowledged that his returning to Fenway Park was a […]

Empire Of Blights: Red Sox Pummelled, 9-3

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/)As correctly predicted by our FenwayNation Poll, there were far more boos than cheers when renegade Jacoby Ellsbury stepped to the plate for the first time in pinstriped laundry. Three pitches later, he rifled a ball off the center field wall for a triple. So much for the effectiveness of booing. Ellsbury and fellow Bronx newcomer Masahiro Tanaka combined to completely outclass your Carmine Hose in an ugly contest at Fenway Park last night. The stands were littered with fans of the Pinstriped Posers, and they had a lot to cheer about. Jon Lester was horrific at the...

Jacoby Ellbury hears it from fans

It’s official. Jacoby Ellsbury is a New York Yankee.The impact made by the former Red Sox center fielder started early last night at Fenway Park, and the boos directed at him became louder with every game-changing play he made.Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a triple, a double, two RBI and two runs scored, and made a highlight-reel catch to rob Red Sox leadoff man Grady Sizemore of a hit in the first inning as the Yankees ran away with a 9-3 victory in the series opener.

Coffey: Jacoby has one Ell of a return to Fenway vs. former team

The old brick place on Lansdowne St. isn’t his office anymore, and it didn’t take the center fielder for the New York Yankees long to find that out. At 10 minutes after 7 p.m. Tuesday night, Jacoby Ellsbury, No. 22 in road grays, came to the plate for the 3,205th time in his big-league career, and for the first time as a visiting player at Fenway Park.

Ellsbury reminds Sox what they're missing

BOSTON -- After all the pleasantries were out of the way, after he had delivered his obligatory -- and canned -- "it's great to be home" speech. After all the Boston writers had gone away satisfied that the prodigal son had not been beaten up too badly by the Fenway faithful in his return as a Yankee, it was time for a brief glimpse into the "real" Jacoby Ellsbury. Told that he had stuck a knife deep into the heart of his old fan base, not only in the top of the first inning when he narrowly missed hitting a leadoff home run to the deepest part of the ballpark, but also in the bottom of the...

Nava at risk, but entire OF struggling

BOSTON -- It can be no easy thing for the Red Sox to delay activating outfielder Shane Victorino, not when the team’s outfielders are batting a collective .209 (49 of 234), which ranks them ahead of only the Houston Astros in the American League at that position. And when Jacoby Ellsbury comes to town and doubles, triples, scores two runs and drives in two others in a 9-3 Yankees win Tuesday night, that only serves to underscore Boston’s offensive shortcomings in the outfield in the season’s first 21 games.

Postgame notes: “Always knew how well you were playing by the boos”

Jacoby Ellsbury was booed, and he was cheered. He was honored on the video board, occasionally jeered in the stands, and he was a difference maker in the box score. “When I was with the Red Sox, you always knew how well you were playing by the boos (on the road),” Ellsbury said. “The louder […]The post Postgame notes: “Always knew how well you were playing by the boos” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Jacoby Ellsbury gets much warmer reception that Johnny Damon in his return: ‘The fans were great’

Johnny Damon had warned Jacoby Ellsbury before the game Tuesday that he would find out just how vicious Red Sox fans could be for leaving Boston for the Yankees. After all, when Damon signed with the Bronx Bombers prior to the 2006 season, he was roundly booed and excoriated every time he set foot inside [...]
