Boston Globe columnist Bob Ryan joins Gary Tanguay and Andy Gresh of "Uno Sports Tonight" to talk about Jacoby Ellsbury's big postseason so far and how the potential free agent will cash in this offseason.

"It's ka-ching, ka-ching for every four hit game in the playoffs," Ryan said. [Ellsbury's agent] Scott Boras can't supress the grin. He's a valuable commodity. He's going to hit the jackpot...More than likely it won't be here."

Co-host Andy Gresh said they'll be plenty of National League suitors for Ellsbury in the offseason because of his style of play.

"There's an element of his game that's very much National League," Gresh said. "Find a way to get on, steal a base."

The question, as it always has been with Ellsbury, Ryan said, is just what kind of leadoff hitter are you getting?

"Who are you buying?" Ryan asked. "A leadoff hitter like Johnny Damon or one like Bobby Bonds?"
