Theo, please don't. Ellsbury is an uprising star that is already beloved by the fans. Don't get me wrong, Johan is an unbelievable pitcher that I would love to ahve on our team, but don't give up Ellsbury. Thank the Lord that Theo is reportedly not willing to trade Jacoby. Please don't change your mind.
Ellsbury was a great player who also came through in the playoffs. He is fast, a good fielder, and he can hit well. He is young and he has great potential and upside. Also, the Red Sox already have a strong rotation that could be made one of the best with the addition of Santana. Right now we have Beckett, Schilling, Daisuke, Lester, Buccholz, and Wakefield. There is no way we should trade Clay. Perhaps we should trade Lester.
Ellsbury will soon be replacing Coco Crisp as the starting centerfielder. Coco is an amazing fielder and he is young. Lester is also young and a skilled pitcher. We also have a skilled prospect, Andrew Pinckney by name. If this is not enough to enamor the Twins how about we add Lugo to the equation? Lugo isn't an exciting trading option for the Twins, but you never know what kind of bounce back year he could have. This will leave a hole at shortstop fot the Red Sox. The Sox have Alex Cora on the bench and they have a great hitter, good baserunner, and decent fielder climbing through the ranks in the minor leagues. His name is Jed Lowrie and he was named Red Sox' minor league offensive player of the year.
The Twins no longer have Torii Hunter and Coco Crisp is a centerfielder. The Twins also want to have another young pitcher, I mean, who doesn't, right? We present Jon Lester, cancer survivor! Pinckney is a great fielder with good reaction time which is important at third base. He makes good contact and has average power for his position. The Twins have Nick Punto who is a good player. A good fielder and decent hitter. Pinckney would be able to move to second base. And Lugo, well he doesn't have much value.
Alright, I'll admit it before you guys insult me. My trade is terrible. There is very little chance this trade will actually work. Just please Theo, don't trade Jacoby. He will be a superstar eventually. Lester and Coco? Fine. Go ahead. I am perfectly fine with our rotation being Josh Beckett, Johan Santana, Curt Schilling, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and either Clay Buccholz or Tim Wakefield. In fact, I'm more than perfectly fine with that. Who wouldn't be? A rotation like that could top anyone's in the league. Then have Jacoby starting at center, well I've wanted that since the first time I saw Ellsbury play! Wow, this would be great. Please don't pinch me, this is such a good dream!
