Ellsbury looks great so far, going 9-9 in steals, playing good D, acting as a leader in Lowell, and hitting close to .280. However, he's a bit banged up right now and has been held out of the lineup. At the best, don't expect to see Jacoby in the majors until September 2006 or the start of 2007. If we're going to let Damon go and replace him from within, Adam Stern will be the only real option, and I don't think he's ready for a 150 game per season job quite yet. He was only in AA this time last year and has 2 MLB hits in his career.
