Dan Shaughnessy: Injured outfielder Ellsbury in a tenuous situation with Red Sox

Jacoby Ellsbury burst onto the national stage when the Red Sox swept the Colorado Rockies in the 2007 World Series. With only 33 games of big league ball under his belt (he hit .353 in that sample), Ellsbury batted .438 and hit four doubles in the Fall Classic. He had a four-hit game in his first World Series start. His name came up every time the Sox tried to make a trade that winter, but the Sox always said no. And their faith in the flossy prospect was rewarded when Ellsbury took over the leadoff spot, batting .301 with a club-record 70 steals in 153 games in 2009.
