Cody Ross on 10th inning double: ‘I feel like I should have caught it’

Cody, Cody I didn’t hear you say
I didn’t hear your voice calling me away

It was a play that proved costly for the Red Sox, as Jamey Carroll singled home the eventual winning run two batters later. For Ross, it led to regret.

“I feel like I should have caught it,” Ross said. “Any ball that is hit my way I feel like I should catch.

“It’s tough to defend the whole field. It’s a big field out there. I caught a couple balls down the line that could have easily been triples, but that one drops in and it just so happens that it’s in a big part of the game. It was just spotlighted.”

Ross, who went 2-for-5 with a double and a run in the game, said that neither he nor Ellsbury called for the ball, but even so he felt as if he should have caught it.

...“Any time we lose it’s old,” he said. “Obviously we want to win every single game that we can accomplish, but – we feel like we are a better team than this, and it’s frustrating. It’s a tough time now.

“Talent can only go so far. You have to figure out ways to win. There is a difference between being a really talented group and being a winning group, and on paper it looks like that, but right now it feels like we are treading water. It’s not a good feeling. We have to snap out of it.”

Do you get the sense that newcomers to the Red Sox like Ross ("We have to snap out of it") and Bailey (I don't give a ####, put me anywhere you need to put me") are like, "Man, this is a ###ed up clubhouse!"

In Red Sox Nation and Boston-area media, I am hearing an increasingly public opinion that, of all people, Dustin Pedroia is the ringleader of dysfunction. He can't stand Valentine, and he's been encouraging others to both feel the same way, and to express that disdain in a variety of ways...don't know if it's true, but it is being talked about increasingly...
