    Ellsbury to the Yankees for 7 years $153M?

    ‏@FeinsandNYDN 4m
    The Yankees' deal with Ellsbury is done, pending a physical. I'm told the contract is bigger than Crawford's 7 year/$142M deal.

    What a horrible contract, don't know what they're thinking. Also credit to Bags for saying this for years.

    I saw this coming. I should be shocked and pissed but a part of me is glad that the yankees signed him and now have to deal with his contract for the next 7 years when he keeps getting hurt. sure his HR numbers will probably go up but still tho

    Ellsbury to the Yankees?

    I gotta say...it hurts more than expected.

    Yanks were probably serious about having a limit on Cano and now moved on. Ells for 150 and Kendrick/Infante at 2B + 2 SP. I knew the yanks wouldn't care about the 189 at all

    Bye Ells, it was nice knowing ya

    Thanks for all of the SBs and nice plays in center Jacoby.

    This has to make Cano's price to re-sign with the Yankees much bigger now though.

    The #Yankees have reached a tentative agreement with Jacoby Ellsbury on a seven-year deal in excess of $150 million.

    Yankees deal with Ellsbury is seven years and $153 million. That's $12 million more than Crawford's contract.

    Talk of an 8th year option too

    Why are you guys hurt? The writing has been on the wall for years. We all knew he'd take the largest contract he could find. I'm actually glad it was the Yanks. 7 year deal ($20M+ per) for an injury prone CF that relies on his speed? They'll regret this soon enough.

    I'm not really hurt, even though I'll miss his base running and fielding, that isn't worth the contract he's getting.

    Ellsbury deal is 7-$153M, pending physical #Yankees will try for speed/on-base atop order and defense with Gardner/Ellsbury in OF


    I have to say 'I told you so' to all the people I admonished for thinking contracts well under $100M were possible. This is way more than even I anticipated. Like I said in that thread(s), free agency always surprises for how outrageous contracts can get.

    Not sure why this hurts for any of you?

    Ellsbury has always seemed like the type that would go anywhere, winner or loser, for the money.

    As for the actual deal. I've said my thoughts in the MLB forum and I don't feel like typing it again. But wow, what an awful contract.

    He'll probably get cheered his first game back. Imagine all of the confusion that will ensue out of the female pink hats

    A couple of things to note, the Yankees have already spent nearly $240 million this off-season and they have yet to sign Cano as well as fix their pitching staff. And when does Trout become FA eligible? Because this deal might end the possible nightmare of Trout becoming a Yankee. Then again, they could always play one of them in LF, bleh.

    I'm relieved that we didn't keep him at an idiotic price. Hate to see any of our players wear that uniform though, the Yankees love doing that though. I think next week or so will say a lot about Ben. Will he do a panic counter move just because of all the media attention this will get? I think he won't, he seems to be a patient guy who waits for the right move.
