Cody Ross. The one who once pitched an inning against the Phillies as a Marlin and the one who once killed the Phillies in the National League Championship Series back in 2010. Could Ross goe from foe to friend?
National Baseball Writer Nick Carfardo of the Boston Globe is reporting that the Phillies and Yankees both are "very interested" in right-handed outfielder Cody Ross. Of course, the Phillies cannot make that known publicly because Ross is a member of the Boston Red Sox and to make such a statement would be tampering.
Ross might have made good sense for the Phillies in 2012, but the Phillies decided to give John Mayberry Jr. first crack at left field. The right-handed hitting Ross is hitting .268 with 21 home runs and 76 RBI for the Red Sox.
