Cody Ross reminds us he likes hitting home runs and going to hockey games

Cody Ross’ #1 B-Ref comp is Kevin Mench, yet…Adrian Gonzalez sees fit to try and give him a big head.

That was the consensus the instant the outfielder signed his one-year, $3 million deal with the Red Sox this offseason. Saturday’s Sox’ 25-0 win over Northeastern at JetBlue Park did nothing to dissuade such analysis going forward.

Ross launched two home runs over the 42-foot left field wall – the second coming in the form of a grand slam – on the way to a memorable beginning to his Red Sox’ career.

“Cody Ross is an unbelievable player. He’s a great player,” said Adrian Gonzalez, who also had a homer in the rout over the Huskies. “I’ve always said he goes up to the plate fearless and has a great s wing. Plays the game hard. Plays a great outfield. Runs the bases hard. Has a great arm in the outfield. When he came into camp and guys are talking about him as a guy that they don’t know what’s going to happen. I was like, what are you guys talking about? This guy is a legit everyday player who can do it all. The great thing about it so is [Ryan] Sweeney. We have tow guys that are going to compete and do a great job in right field.”

When people look back at Cody Ross' career in a Boston uniform, I bet the first thing they think about is "remember the time he hit two home runs against Northwestern?"

Must be a big thrill for a college team to face off against the Red Sox. So big that the kids might someday get over being on the wrong end of a 25-run shutout.
