Cody Ross. Your kids’ names are cool.
I’d like to take a break from the Cody Ross-as-a-player fan van, and point out that, according to wikipedia, his kids have cool names: Haven Leigh and Hudson. Okay, Cody Ross. Okay.
Back to the fan van- it’s official (I’m using a Fox News link just for you, Tim Thomas).
Cody Ross agreed to sign with the Boston Red Sox, giving them an experienced hitter with postseason success on his resume to help replace J.D. Drew in right field.
Is experienced another word for old?
31-years-old. You know. In a few weeks, I’ll be 28. So yeah. 31 is old, alright.
Ross was the MVP in the 2010 Championship Series. That’s great! Oh. It was the National Championship League Series. Hmmm. Guess it doesn’t count…
I’m going to be positive about this. I mean, I don’t know if he was worth the bank to put an Oswalt acquisition in jeopardy. You know. Since everyone’s saying we got rid of the Scut for, you know, Oswalt…
Oh, goody, kids… he has a fan blog! We can have fun with this. I can’t wait to see what Cody Ross fans have to say about… oh. Zero comments, Cody Ross blog? Damnit, Cody Ross blog, you are disappointing.
It’s okay, Cody Ross. You’re in the nation now. We’re much louder than what you’re used to. Might want to leave that off-the-boat-wide-eyed-thing in Arizona.
Here’s something interesting. He’s from Carlsbad, New Mexico and went to high school with his wife.
Cody’s favorite player is Ken Griffey Jr., who he named his dog after. Cody had the unlucky luck to go on the DL just after getting traded from L.A. to the Reds. While on the DL, guess who else was on DL? Yep, Cody got to work out with Griffey Jr. while they were “healing”. Now there’s a dream come true.
So. Um. We both have dogs.
Why can’t we make a move that I could be actually excited about? You know, and not wikipedia-ing for fake excitement?
PS- SOME PEOPLE sure get excited about this guy…
