Jacoby Ellsbury dropped to ninth in the order

Aug 9, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

From leadoff last night to last for today’s tilt against the Yankees: Jacoby Ellsbury will bat ninth reports Gordon Edes.

Ellsbury is 0 for 16 since coming off the DL.  I’m sure there’s some considerable rust there and, in the grand scheme of things, 16 at bats isn’t a lot.  But given the hype and controversy that has surrounded Ellsbury’s injuries this year, you have to think that he’s dying to break out of the funk.

    Good. It was foolish to drop him right back into the leadoff roll after missing so much time in the first place.
