Wait, what? Let’s go to the New York papers to see what’s up.

Wow! Twinsies headlines.

What sparked that? Boston Red Sox free agent Jacoby Ellsbury is bolting to the New York Yankees.

For $153 million. Over seven years.

Not only is it a massive deal monetarily, but the fact that Ellsbury is moving from the Sox to the Yankees is huge news. The rivalry is fierce and has a heated history.

Some congratulated Ellsbury, though, while not masking their Yankees hatred, heh.
