ESPNBoston.com’s Joe McDonald caught up with Jacoby Ellsbury on Monday, discussing among other things:
* Whether he thinks he could beat sprinter Usain Bolt in a sprint around the bases;
* How he feels about being a full-time left fielder;
* Whether he would consider signing a long-term deal before he reaches arbitration, like teammates Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester.
Check out Joe’s story on Ellsbury’s shift to left field, which includes Fred Lynn’s thoughts on the move.
