In Navajo, "Jacoby" means "awesome"

I'm still recovering from the weekend's games. After those two marathons on Friday and Saturday, last night's game was only 3+ hours. Yet it provided what is arguably the top moment of the season so far. In the fifth, Jacoby Ellsbury stole home plate! It's something you rarely see tried - never mind done successfully - so it was an electric moment at Fenway. The crowd went absolutely nuts - and rewarded Ells with a very rare (for Fenway) curtain call.

The whole weekend series felt like October not April. If these games are a preview of what we can expect this year from our Sox, I think I better being taking power naps in the afternoon and stock the refrigerator!

Beth, we're on the same page with the picture again! What a fantastic moment; only other steal of home I can personally remember seeing is when Crawford stole home against the Sox in '06 so this is WAY better.
