If you are wondering how a player who has never had another season in which he has reached double-digits in home runs could reach 32, you are not alone.
Ellsbury has a magnificent swing and he does hit the ball hard. He can get some distance on his shots. But to suddenly reach the 32-home run mark when he has never had 10 leads to questions.
Questions? What questions? Oh, Steve Silverman, you are sooo cagey, blithely accusing of Ellsbury of doing something to boost performance. Rather than backhanded accusations, why not just come out and ask: “Jacoby, did you take PED’s in 2011?” Instead, you did a fine job in not hiding your contempt and highlighting your not-so-opaque accusations. Well done, sir.
