Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe joins "Uno Sports Tonight" to discuss whether he thinks Jacoby Ellsbury will be back for the playoffs, and if the Sox need him to win a World Series.

As for Ellsbury's return, Shaughnessy isn't convinced we'll see him again this season, or postseason.

"The man has a broken bone in his foot and does not have a track record of speedy recovery," he said.

Also, Shaughnessy argued the market for the potential free agent is set, no matter if he returns or not. Coming back too soon could only hurt his value.

Do the Red Sox need him to win it all?

"No," Shaughnessy said emphatically. "It's not like he's your quarterback or goalie...They can survive this."
