I'm about as high on Jacob Ellsbury as anyone west of the Berkshires, but when you see headlines like "Red Sox' Ellsbury seems ready to blaze a trail to stardom," you have to figure that a non trivial amount of disappointment is in the offing. While a fine player, he's not likely to hit .350 and repeat as a postseason hero. No one is, though I get a vibe that that's what Red Sox Nation expects.
Question: what will the headlines look like if he hits a workmanlike .290 with very little power? Because that's what he did in just over 400 AAA plate appearances last year.
