John Farrell and Torey Lovullo started the trend. And there's talk of re-uniting with Justin Masterson, Kevin Youkilis, Anibal Sanchez and Adam LaRoche. Now comes word that yet another former Red Sox player—catcher David Ross—has been signed to a 2-year, $6.2 million contract. Huh? A 35-year old career back-up signed to a 2-year deal? What the heck does this portend for Salty and Lavarnway? Obviously, one of them is headed somewhere else in a deal—since Ross is being characterized as "more than a backup, but not a starter". Fasten your seat belts, Nation, The Big Reunion Tour is likely to kick into high gear with another big trade.
