While some angry Red Sox fans spent Tuesday on Twitter calling Jacoby Ellsbury a "trader" — and not a "traitor" — for agreeing to a seven-year, $153-million, others were threatening to turn into pyromaniacs.
Dozens upon dozens of people said they wanted to burn their Ellsbury jerseys — many saying that he broke their hearts for deciding to don pinstripes, especially after winning a 2013 World Series with them.
Ellsbury's first trip back to Fenway Park next season should be a hot ticket.
