then again... maybe he won't.

Rumors drive me crazy because they are crafted to peak interest and click to read and usually... nothing happens. I admit it, I just fell for the trap. 

Here's the reality... the Yankees want to move Jacoby Ellsbury.  That's because they have too many outfielders and while Ellsbury is good, he's older, more expensive and not as great as he once was.

And so, yup... I clicked.  I clicked so you don't have to.  Read this...

"Jacoby Ellsbury was said early this winter not to want to waive his full no-trade clause, but word now is that he might consider waiving it for a select few teams, and the San Francisco Giants could be one of them.

Ellsbury could fit in as the Giants’ center fielder, whereas with the Yankees he seems destined to be the fourth outfielder, as Yankees people say they are going with Aaron Hicks in center field. Ellsbury lives in the Phoenix area, so the Giants’ spring home in Scottsdale would be a plus for him, too.

He actually didn’t have a bad season last year with the Yankees, but was derailed by a concussion suffered while crashing into the center field wall at Yankee Stadium. He had been hoping to stay with the Yankees and try to win the center-field job, but Hicks is seen as a rising star."

And so, words like "could" are the most important part of this nugget from Jon Heyman.  And then you read it and you're like...


Here's the reality, and BYB does this most because we hate the rumor season for this... we don't know if this is real or not. We don't know if this is a team actually considered.  We just need to wait.

That being said, the idea of Ellsbury out of the Bronx is intriguing.  And so... we wait.
