April 22-24 is one series that Red Sox Nation will have circled on their calender. That's the first time Jacoby Ellsbury returns to Fenway in his new uniform - a Yankees uniform. So, our question to you Red Sox Lifers is this: What will you do when he returns to Fenway, boo or cheer?
On one side, you have the fact that he was a major part of 2 World Championships and he gave us 6 good years. It's hard to forget that he gave the Red Sox his all for 6 years. And at the end of the day, Major League Baseball is a business and both the Red Sox and Ellsbury decided it wasn't in their best interests to bring him back. And it's hard to fault Ellsbury for making the best decision for him, even if Red Sox fans now see him as a mercenary.
On the other hand, he went to the Yankees, which puts him on the blacklist for most Red Sox fans. Some fans could see ellsbury was not going to re-sign here, while others hoped he would be back in a Red Sox uniform. But at the end of the day, I think most of Red Sox Nation was pretty upset when he ended up going to the Yankees.
Let us know where you stand - will you boo or cheer when Jacoby returns to Fenway?
