UPDATE: David Ross signs with Boston

UPDATE: DOB says Rossy will be getting $6.25 million over the next two years. The Braves paid Matt Diaz $2 million last year. 

Ross should still be a Brave. 

It won’t be David Ross, signed to a two-year deal by the effing Red Sox, reports Ken Rosenthal.

Not sure what the offer was, so I’ll reserve judgment, but I assumed Ross would be returning. The Braves lose not only the best reserve catcher in the game but a dependable right-handed bat and great clubhouse guy. I suspect we’ll see someone like Rod Barajas or Miguel Olivo, both free agents, take his place — or try to.

  1. Pierzynski expressed a desire to play here the other day. Just so you’re prepared for that possibility.

  2. Normally I wouldn’t be bummed about the reserve catcher leaving, but Mr. Ross transcended that role. Good luck in Boston, sir.

  3. Does this maybe signal that the Braves are trying to free up as much $$$ as possible to try and re-sign Bourn?

    I hate to see Ross leave; especially since we’re now stuck with an unknown at catcher for at least the first month of next season.
