When you see a lineup like this, you really have to wonder how healthy Ellsbury is. I know Ichiro hits lefties well but you are starting two lefties in the OF against a left-handed pitcher ahead of Ellsbury. And this is the guy you spent the money on.
Please if he’s not healthy, just DL him. As Monk would say, “you’ll thank me later.”
I don’t know if Jose Abreu is going to hit the whole season, but he has displayed some nasty power already in the 3 games he has played. He has hit a ball off the wall in every game he has played in, and hit like 2 off the wall today in cold weather.
