Ellsbury just letting it fly again


Jacoby Ellsbury electrified Red Sox Nation in a late season callup last year, and started off just as hot this year. Then came the summer months (and a wrist injury), when he slumped to a season-low line of .258/.323/.352 on August 2. But Ellsbury is back on fire, with a .309/.347/.471 September that has fans revved up again.

He attributes his extended slump to overanalysis and too much thinking at the plate; some minor adjustments plus a more relaxed attitude at the dish has helped him to regain his confidence. With the playoffs right around the corner, the Red Sox will need their sparkplug to be firing on all cylinders to beat some tough squads.
