Respected Ross Putting Experience to Work

David Ross Literally Puts His Nuts on the Line for the Sox

The state of the Red Sox’ recent play isn’t the only thing leaving a sting. During tonight’s contest with the Rangers, David Ross took a bounced ball to the nuts that had me bent over in pain roughly 15 miles from Fenway.

Beard Talk With David Ross

Great interview with David Ross in the Bangor Daily News (that’s in Maine, folks). Of course I ignored all the baseball questions and went for the important stuff: The Red Sox grew beards as a sign of unity and he admitted that he hated his. “It was a skunk nest,” said Ross. “I had to put conditioner in it and blow-dry it.” He said the Red Sox will miss center fielder Jacoby...
