PLAYERS: Cody Ross
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox

Via NESN:

Cody Ross puts his pants on the same way that everybody else does: one leg at a time. The only difference is, when they're on, they're about a dozen sizes too small.

The Red Sox outfielder stayed loose with his teammates on Wednesday by donning a pair of tight, tight pants during batting practice. There's a reason the pants are so ill-fitting, however -- they belong to Ross' 5-year-old son.

That didn't stop Ross from showing off his style in the Red Sox dugout, and taking the time to pose for WEEI's Rob Bradford.

With the Red Sox on the verge of their first losing season since 1997, and having already been eliminated from the playoffs, most of the storylines about the team do not involve this year.
