Ok! Everyone has calmed down, pinched themselves in the butt and realized what Cody Ross did in the playoffs were real. I saw Cody’s dad yesterday and ask him if he had come down yet, he said I’m trying to with a shit eating grin on his face. The last month for this man has been a roller coaster of emotions. Marlins putting Ross on waivers, picked up by the Giants, sporadic playing time, Giants in the race for the NLE, Cody working his way into the line up every day, producing runs and playing stellar defense, Giants in the playoffs, Cody hitting two home runs off of Halliday which Kenny predicted his son would hit another one after the first one. That’s knowing your kid……Cody almost single handedly took the Giants to the world series, MVP of the NLCS, an instant star in San Fransisco, reporters, interviews, pictures, on the road with the team, screw work, we got more important things to do Janet…….
Its time like I do every year to predict what Cody will make next year, and this time around wonder what team he will play with. Rumors are that the Giants want to keep him (DUH!). The Giants do have payroll constraints that will come into effect for next year. Ross will make more than his 4.25 mill last year. The General manager said they will keep Cody. For one year or more is the question. They have control over Cody for 2011 and then Ross is a free agent. Will they sign him to a multi year contract to avoid free agency? Will they trade him? Will they sign him to a one year deal and try to trade him after 2011? These are questions that will be answered this off season. Stay tuned folks the off season can almost be exciting as the season.
