I am not sure who watched the Marlins tonight but it was the first game without Cody. I have never heard the Marlins crew being Rich, Tommy, and Craig give such cudos to a player that has left the Marlins. Not Cabrera, Willis or Cantu. He was truly loved by the Marlins and the staff. It brought a tear to my eye when they talked so highly about Cody. They even had a highlight reel on Cody after the game. It was e-mail Tuesday and there were tons of angry e-mailers about Cody leaving the team. Not many players can leave such an impact on a team, but Ross did that with style. One thing for sure, everyone thought it was a good career move for Ross. I guess time will tell. Cody will be a non tender player next year meaning he will basically be a free agent looking for a team. I think what happens with the Giants will tell the story. Cody is off to a good start going one for one last night and as I write this he starts in right field and is one for one with an rbi. Cody coming up to bat as I write this with the Giants ahead 4-1. Grounded out to third base. Ok Ross 2 for 3 as a Giant. Keep it up bubba.
I understand what the Marlins did and agree thats what they had to do. If Maybin is the centerfielder of the future they need to find out now. We all knew this was coming just not this soon. If Maybin doesn’t cut it they might sign Cody back. Who knows its baseball…..
