THE BEAUTY OF PLAYING FOR THE SOX AND YANKEES...:

Clone Wars: Jacoby Ellsbury and Juan Pierre (Troy Patterson, 6/29/09, Hardball Times)

Jacoby Ellsbury had a huge 33 games in a 2007 call up and even made a great showing in the 2007 playoffs, but has yet to match those numbers since. He has been given many comparisons to other players, including Fred Lynn, Johnny Damon and Ichiro Suzuki. So far though he has fallen short in different ways, like batting eye or power. This leaves him in a dangerous position and looking dangerously more like Juan Pierre.

...is that you never have to face up to your true talent level.
