Re: Ross has to go.
1. Bottomline...just about any AAA catcher could produce similar results at the plate as Ross for league minimum.
2. The part that I don't agree with many is this concept that Ross handles the pitching staff better than Javy....The only pitcher worth a box or rocks this year was Harang. Aaron was good when he pitched to LaRue a few years back and probably just as good when he pitched to Javy. Arroyo stumbled this year, Belisle was way up and down, etc..
3. The BP, we all know how that part of the pitching staff ended up.
4. Ross is a good throwing catcher, but that skill is greatly diminished due to hardly anyone runs for a significant amount of thier run production anymore.
So in the end, Wayne did overpay for Ross, when he could have leveraged Ross to a lower contract or simply opt for a Jorgenson, Sardinha RH catcher to compliment next to Javy.
