I know we spoke about this briefly last night in the Jacoby Ellsbury thread, but this has to be addressed again because I’ve noticed on Twitter everyone is freaking out like the Major League Baseball apocalypse is coming.
“Absolutely not,” a source told Wallace Matthews. “The whole idea is to put the two of them at the top of the lineup. They would be an electric duo.”
So there you have it. The Yankees aren’t going to move Gardner. So instead of plotting where his new team would be (it’d be ironic if it was the Red Sox), imagine him and Ellsbury stealing bases on a daily basis, annoying the heck out of the pitchers and the both of them being on the same side for once.
