Other Shoe Drops—Padres Sign David Ross

UPDATE: Ross To Cubs
Literally minutes after a reported trade of catcher (and Andover High School alum) Ryan Hanigan to Boston, the San Diego Padres scooped up former Red Sox backstop David Ross. In 2014—until the late-season emergence of Christan Vazquez—Ross was part of one of the worst Boston catching tandems in history with A.J. Pierzynski. However, Ross will always be remembered as catching the final strike as the Red Sox clinched their first World Series at Fenway Park in 95 years in 2013.
