Jacoby Ellsbury dropped to ninth in the order

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.
