Well, it was just a matter of time. Yet another player who had proven successful in Boston was, inexplicably, not to the liking of the NOG. So, Cody Ross is gone—signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks to a three-year deal worth $26 million. Ross, famously called "cheerful" in an email sent by Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino, will now be laughing all the way to Chase (Bank) Field. Ross hit .267 in his one year with the Sox, clouting 22 home runs and 81 RBIs.
