    Cody Ross

    3 HRs and 7 RBI tonight. Not a bad night at the ballpark.

    Re: Cody Ross

    He had a similiar game like this with the Dodgers earlier in the year.

    Needless to say.........he would have been a better 4th OF than anything the Reds had after, and maybe even before, AK was traded.

    Agreed. Trading Ross to keep McCracken is one in the L column for Krivsky this year.

    That's the hardest thing to swallow. I certainly didn't mind not keeping Ross, but by all appearances it was soley to keep Q around. That yaks.

    Ross is having a fine year, no doubt about it. However, his problem here was that he didn't hit lefthanded. Q could and was an OFer too. Plus, you don't know how Ross would have done as a backup. I believe he is playing regularly in FLA. Getting 4-5 ABs most every day helps you a lot more than getting one or two a week.

    Cody Ross was, at best, a 5th OF option behind Dunn, Kearns, Griffey and Freel. Even post-Kearns trade, he would probably have been behind Denorfia on the depth chart.

    He's a decent ballplayer, but he'd have been languishing in obscurity if he'd stuck around the 513 area.

    Though he's pretty much exactly the kind of guy I'd want around as a 5th OF - good glove, has some wheels to go with a little pop. By definition 5th OFs have their flaws, but Ross, as he showed last night, has the ability to do some big things right.

    I agree, at the time, Ross was in the Wily Mo mold when our latin free swinger was stuck searching for playing time behind Griffey, Dunn and Kearns. Once Kearns was shipped to the nation's capital, that's when I really started to miss Ross, since I deem him to be better and have higher value than Hollandsworth. Denorfia vs Ross? Advantage Denorfia defensively, offensively it probably goes to Ross. I much rather would have seen 5 OF than 3 C, I do know that.

    I don't believe we've received our player yet. I know we finalized our deal with the Dodgers, giving up Ben Kozlowski who played in both AA and AAA, finishing the season 3-6 with a 3.79 ERA. The transaction for Ross indicates PTBNL or "cash considerations". We may well take the cash.

    I felt all along it was a no lose situation. We're not going to get anything great from the Marlins, but you never know. Anyone still have any idea what PTBNL transactions are still open out there?
