It's a list that begins with Babe Ruth and includes Wade Boggs, Roger Clemons, Johnny Damon and now, Jacoby Ellsbury. And you know what we're talking about. The former fleet-footed Red Sox center-fielder is now a Yankee.

Just a couple of months ago he was in duck boat celebrating a World Series victory in Boston, but now he's heading to New York. And who can blame him? The Yankees offered the talented outfielder $153 million dollars over seven years.
