This doesn't seem like a very good deal to me. Ross isn't much of a center fielder anymore and they're already committed to others in the corners. So if this means they have to trade Kubel, then I'm not sure how Ross is an upgrade. He's a better defender, but a worse hitter Plus there's Parra and Eaton to deal with. Wouldn't it have been easier just to keep Chris Young?
any team that puts cody ross in centerfield in a non-emergency situation is a team that does not understand how ballgames are won
It all seems so pointless.
Huh? With Kubel, Ross, Upton, Parra and Eaton it would seem somebody has got to go
i am not going to believe that the d'backs are so foolish as to have ross play centerfield save for an ebola outbreak that has killed half the roster
Goldie, Kubel, Parra, & Eaton bat lefty, Upton, Ross righty. Plus defenders: Parra, Upton, Eaton, Decent: Ross Terrible: Kubel.
On how the Ross deal came together: "It actually happened rather quickly. We started the process on Monday. Met with Cody and (wife) Summer I want to say it was on Tuesday. Really it was kind of prompted by myself and Derrick (Hall) and owner Ken Kendrick looking at the rest of the free-agent list that’s out there. We were talking about our current situation and where we should add. Ken had asked me, ‘Is there there any free agents out there who could improve our ballcub?’ We went through them. We met in Ken’s office and he said, ‘I’ve got a guy.’ He had me guess a little bit. I said, ‘I’ve got a couple of guys as well.’ I said, ‘Who’s your guy?’ He said, ‘Cody Ross.’ I said, ‘That’s my guy as well.’ I think Derrick felt the same way."
Goldschmidt is a right handed hitter.

"grinding" ......... seems to be code for "he sucks, but he keeps trying."
Good recap of some of this baffling offseason
