Today on the Baseball Reporters, Tony Massarotti discussed the Boston Red Sox, Jacoby Ellsbury’s 5 stolen bases last night, and the fact that he has been scratched from tonight’s line up against the New York Yankees. Is the stolen base an overrated stat? Also, Clay Buchholz will make his return to the mound Sunday against the Yankees. The Sox start a 3-game series with the Yankees tonight. It’s a battle between 1st and 2nd place teams, and yet there isn’t much hype surrounding it. Why don’t people care about this Sox-Yankees series?
