I just read a couple of articles about Cody Ross and how he’s feeling now that he’s with the Boston Red Sox (he signed a one-year, $3 million dollar deal with them last month).

It’s late as I’m writing this so maybe I’ve just had a long day and I’m tired. But, man, it sure seems like Ross is bitter about the way things turned out for him in San Francisco.

In one article, by Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald, Ross practically calls Giants general manager Brian Sabean a liar:

“Sabean told me that’s not why they got me, but I know that it was. He said, ‘Contrary to what you may hear, we wanted you. We wouldn’t have put a claim on you if we didn’t.’  I said, ‘I don’t care. I’m here. Let’s go. I’ll do anything you want me to do.’ “

Ross is talking about the reason the Giants plucked him off the waiver wire in August of 2010. And he’s obviously sticking to his story that San Francisco was more interested in blocking the San Diego Padres from acquiring him than picking up a sixth outfielder.

“They already had five outfielders. I was coming in as the sixth outfielder. When I got there I wasn’t playing, and I was saying to myself, ‘What’s going on?’ It was tough. I’ll be honest with you.”

Wow. Bitter much, Cody?

Rather than just walk away gracefully from the team that allowed him to win a World Series ring, Ross is blabbing his mouth all around Beantown talking about how much better it is in Boston.

In a Boston.com article by Nick Cafardo, Ross says:

“I’m really excited right now to be a part of an amazing organization, to know what these guys are all about. That’s what I want to do. Great group of guys. Looking forward to it… Boston is a great fit.”

Ross earned $6.3 million dollars with the Giants last year and originally stated that he wanted a three-year deal, then softened his demands to a two-year deal. When no one wanted to invest in him for longer than a year, he settled for a one-year contract.

In the Boston.com story, he goes on to say he chose the Red Sox over “several options” this off-season, including—apparently—the San Francisco Giants.

Maybe Cody is just one of those guys who knows what to say when the cameras are rolling. I mean, all you have to do is substitute the word ‘Boston’ for ‘San Francisco’ in the quote above and you have practically the same sound bite Ross gave when he first came to the Giants.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful for the time we had The Boss. The Giants wouldn’t have won the World Series had Ross not took it to Roy Halladay and the Phillies the way he did in the NLCS. He will always be a big fan favorite in the Bay Area because of that.

But can you at least act like you’re a little bummed to not be a Giant anymore, Cody?




I hope you enjoyed reading "Is Cody Ross bitter about the Giants?." I'm interested in your opinion on this article. Why not leave a comment at 22gigantes.com?
