It would be a huge mistake to sign Ellsbury. Huge mistake. I'm loathe to give a long-term deal to a player who is approaching 30 and makes a living with his speed. He'll be good for a couple more years, then his body will break down. The Sox shouldn't even consider him, and I don't think they will.
