Obviously, Bruce was a choice and was not taken. I know Zimmerman was available as was Tulowitszki. There was another name or 2, but I can't recall.
The man-love of Ellsbury is amazing. Don't get me wrong, he's a fine player, but give me all of those guys but Zimmerman over him in a second. I'd probably take Zimmerman, too, but I might think about it a bit.
