It seemed clear that the Giants were headed in another direction as the season closed in 2011. Ross had an injury to his hamstring and sat out the last couple of weeks of the season. Brandon Belt came on pretty strong toward the end of the year. Carlos was not in the mix to resign. Rowand was at odds with management and is laughing all the way to the bank. Burrell will likely retire. Cody is left in the cold of his first year of free agency. Tagged as a fourth outfielder in the mix seems a bit confusing. So the Giants are left with MelkyCabrera, Justin Christian, Tyler Graham, Roger Kieschnick, Angel Pagan, Fransisco Peguero and Nate Schierholtz. Good luck Giants
Rumors have the Rockies and the Reds, possibly the Braves interested in Ross. Looks like the three year deal that Ross is after will not happen. But rumors are rumors and enough said. I cannot understand why Ross would be considered as a fourth outfielder with his defensive ability at all outfield positions and his ability to hit in clutch situations. I guess stats are stats and end of story. I predict not. Wherever Cody goes it will be a pivital year. Mark my words. This guy has fought for recognition his whole baseball career and he will get more intense with age. Look for a break out year for Ross for whoever picks him up. Your gonna get a gem!
