87 is a great year for comparison...........
We'll see how the Ellsbury thing plays out. I'm glad a few people agree with me, it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility that he makes the huge leap forward he has this year. Either way. It's very, very rare. Outside of what has become known as the "steroid" era.
