Red Sox Fan's Spelling Errors Overshadow Her Dig at Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury

Next time, proofread.

This fan should not be smiling while holding her poster. It's pretty impressive that she was able to mess up so badly despite writing only five words, with only three of the words consisting of more than two letters. 

The New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox rivalry is as good as it gets in Major League Baseball. When a player switches sides of the rivalry, he can create a lot of bad blood inside of his old fanbase.

Former Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury isn't the first player to leave Boston for New York, but he is the latest one to do it. The 30-year-old signed a seven-year, $153 million contract with the Yankees this past offseason. 

Ellsbury made his debut with the Yankees on Tuesday in Houston, and one Red Sox fan decided to attend the game with her sign full of spelling errors. That's not a good look for Red Sox Nation.
