Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yankees

Hello, Johnny Damon 2.0. Like the World Series-winning Boston Red Sox center fielder before him, Jacoby Ellsbury reportedly is making the short trip down Interstate 95 to the New York Yankees. It's not for lack of reasons -- around $153 million of them over seven years. Is this a good move for New York? Will the Yankees be back in 2014?

What do you make of the Yankees reportedly signing CF Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year deal worth about $153 million?
