Jacoby Ellsbury experiences different rivalry view as Red Sox come to town

Jacoby Ellsbury 8

Last season, Jacoby Ellsbury was on the Boston Red Sox, a team with a heated rivalry against the New York Yankees. This season, Ellsbury is on the other side of the rivalry, donning pinstripes as the Red Sox come into town for four games against the Bronx Bombers. Ellsbury’s excited, but he remembers that there’s still a game to play when all is said and done.

“I’m looking forward to it, but it’s just really another game,” Ellsbury said. “But I’m definitely looking forward to it. I try not to get into an emotional roller coaster. That’s just each and every game. A good amount of time, a good portion of my life I spent with that organization. I gave them everything I had. I left it all on the field.”

Ellsbury doesn’t have to worry about what the Red Sox fans think of him–that won’t be until the Yankees head to Fenway, but he’s not quite sure what it’s like to be on the other side, especially since he’s been with the Red Sox since he was a first round draft pick in 2005. Ellsbury would later go on to win 2 World Series rings with the Red Sox; one in 2007 and the other in 2013.

“You can think about it,” Ellsbury said, “but until it happens, you don’t know how it’s going to feel.”

“I think it’ll be interesting for him.” Joe Girardi said on the situation, “My thought process is, it’ll be a little bit more interesting when we go there.”
