09:42 AM ET 09.08 | Depending on diagnoses rendered this week in Boston and Colorado, it's conceivable Jacoby Ellsbury has played his last game for the Red Sox. An overdramatization? Perhaps. But Ellsbury returned to Boston yesterday, his right foot encased in a walking boot, and was seen by team physician Dr. Peter Asnis and specialist Dr. George Theodore at Massachusetts General Hospital, then traveled to seek a second opinion from Dr. Thomas Clanton at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., to determine if the pain he has been experiencing is the result of merely a bone bruise or a more sinister fracture. And although general manager Ben Cherington expressed optimism that the leadoff-hitting center fielder's health is "not a long-term concern," manager John Farrell is bracing for the possibility that Ellsbury won't play for a while. "I don't think we're looking at something that's just day to day here," Farrell said.

Ellsbury on the disabled list? Mr. healthy? Say it ant so. Sarcasm button pressed.

This makes him more likely to stay with the team. His price went down and so does the competition for his services.

My thoughts exactly. But I was thinking more of a one year pillow contract in Boston to reestablish his value on the open market. A la Adrian Beltre back in Boston a few years ago.

And if the Sox also re-sign Napoli to another one year contract, you might say the Sox would have their hands between two pillows.

He's gone...Seattle or the Mets

I can see him being signed by Theo.

agreed, how much does he have left on his contract?

The Red Sox should be planning to move on. Don't waste your time squabbling with Boras and Ellsbury. He is fragile and expects to be paid on the basis on the numbers he posted in one season out of seven. Any team that gives him more than two years, $20 million total is run by morons.

September 8, 2013  08:16 PM ET

Ellsbury in cold northeast or Ellsbury in warm south/west???

September 8, 2013  08:27 PM ET

Oops! Boras as an agent? Never mind #15 keep him a Soxy guy...

Agree; he is fragile, not a clubhouse leader, and over 30.
Time to move on. Make an offer but only one with performance and # of games incentives. Boras won't take it, but just to say we tried.

Oh, the Yahoos who call him "Mr. Fragile"! Even a bruised navicular is very painful, as I can attest by personal experience. Even walking on it is painful. Yet, "Mr. Fragile" played with a broken navicular, running hard, batting and sliding into multiple bases. You armchair warriors sure are tough from your armchairs! In the time he has been out, the Red Sox should clearly see that JBJr., as good as he is, is not a replacement for Ells. I hope the Front Office offers him a competitive bid to match his competitive play on the field. We will greatly miss him if they don't.
