Phillies, Dodgers Expressed Interest In Cody Ross

The Phillies and Dodgers expressed interest in Cody Ross, according to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Those two teams discussed Ross with the Marlins, as did the Braves, Red Sox and Yankees. Ross tells Rodriguez that seeing his name in trade rumors is "not a good feeling," but until July 31st comes along, the rumors probably won't stop.

The 29-year-old has split his time between center and right, posting a solid .274/.326/.400 line with seven homers. He makes $4.45MM and won't qualify for free agency until after 2011, so he's more than a rental. Ross has $1.8MM remaining on his salary, but that's less than what many available outfielders will make.

thats stupid. the dodgers have no room for him (at least for the rest of this season) and they let him go without much playing time when they had him. that would be like saying jayson werth would enjoy coming back to the dodgers

If this means Anderson finally gets cut, get it done!

The *only* positive I could see in the Dodgers acquiring Ross (or Upton) would be that it should mean the end of Anderson (once Johnson and Manny return).

Cody’d be a good fit. On days where Manny would be out, and let’s face it, that’s quite a few anymore, the Dodgers could basically have 5 centerfielders who could hit (OKAY, Andre’s ASG appearance is a stretch) when you throw Johnson into the fray and leave GA out of it. Still remember Cody’s big game against Pirates when he knew he was going to get moved in a few days early in…’06 or ’07 (too lazy to look it up right now).

Yeah you will. Only 1 consistent starter and no offensive player producing like they can, double digits out… you will be. You will be.
