More on Ross
If you could just avoid looking to the left and seeing that monstrosity (I mean, really. I know I'm not an attractive man, but good God, I'm not that hideous. Honest).
Anyway, talked to both David Ross and Wayne Krivsky and both are understandably happy about the deal. Ross was in Cincinnati today for his physical and all that jazz before heading back home to Florida tomorrow.
with the two-year deal, Ross said he feels like he's found a home here in Cincinnati.
"I really love it here," Ross said. "After being in L.A. a long period of time, I then bounced around in '05. It's good to have a home, to feel like I have a home. It'’s a good feeling in this city. People really welcomed me here."
With the move, the Reds avoided arbitration with Ross, which pleased Krivsky.
The Reds still have two arbitration-eligible players -- Aaron Harang and Kyle Lohse. Teams and agents must exchange arbitration numbers by noon tomorrow. Krivsky said he's had "open communication" with both players and their agents.
# And, well, if you're still here even though that thing to your left is scaring off the ladies and small children, you can be guaranteed to not see that in person in Indianapolis, even though the Reds recently announced a Winter Caravan stop there. Reds manager Jerry Narron, pitcher Todd Coffey, outfielder Chris Dickerson, Reds Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Browning, new Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman and senior vice president of business operations Phil Castellini will be on that stop, at Jonathan Byrd'’s Cafeteria in Greenwood, Indiana (just south of Indianapolis) on Saturday, January 27 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)
