Said Ellsbury: “Oh, nice. We’re going to the World Series. I wanted to celebrate with the fans. I brought one bottle of Korbel and one bottle of Armand.

“It was awesome, a good feeling. It tasted great. In 2007, we won it all, but we haven’t won it yet. Hopefully we’ll get to do it one more time.”
