Could they not have done this before the STL series?

What and have a Reds killer against the Cards? Nah! Ross has a knack for timely hits but I can understand Florida's reasoning. $6+ million next year is a lot for a small market team when Jonny Gomes is going to be out there looking for work. Right OBM? ;)

I don't remember Ross doing a lot against us last time the Marlins were here.

While I dislike the way the system is set up and the way the Yankees can buy whoever...and claim players off waivers just to sit on the bench even with it costing them $$ (See Jose Canseco about 1999-2000 season).... teams like Florida and Pittsburgh are the complete opposite. Any excuse to dump salary at all....they do it. They literally have to be forced to sign some of their players long term.

Cody Ross at $1-2M is a nice player and a feel good story, Cody Ross at $5M is a waste of resources. The Marlins as a cheap, but generally well run organization understand that as much as anyone in baseball.
