BenCher: Red Sox Still Talking To Cody Ross

In an interview with the Globe's Peter Abraham, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington stated that the team is still talking to free agent outfielder Cody Ross. BenCher's exact words were:

“We continue to talk. There’s really no other update then to say the door is open. We’re also talking to other guys and I presume he is talking to other teams. Those things have a way of starting to move once one of the dominos [SIC] falls."

The problem is if Ross is one of the falling dominoes (we presume BenCher wasn't talking about pizza franchise units), then Boston is left holding the proverbial bag—filled with lesser outfield options.
