Look, Red Sox fans are angry. Logically they probably shouldn't be. The Red Sox didn't offer Ellsbury as much money, so he followed the money. It's not an uncommon thing. But fans don't always think logically. Being a fan is about passion and an unbreakable allegiance to a team. Therefore, being a fan hurts sometimes.
As YouTube uploader Kim Darragh describes:
I wake the little guy up and tell him the news about Jacoby.. My son tells me he "can't go to school today because he's too sad that Jacoby Ellsbury plays for the yankees because the yankees stink" the fact that my 4 year old cried over his favorite player going to play for the yankees........ Awesome. I'm obviously doing something right hahaha YANKEES SUCK
We'll give the kid this much: If he's able to get a day off from school because Ellsbury went to the Yankees, he's a smooth operator. He'll be just fine.
