mlbtraderumors.com reports that we are close to a deal with catcher David Ross.
It is reported to be a two year deal. I like this potential signing because it gives us a good backup catcher. We have lacked that since the days of Estrada and McCann. Ross gives us a reliable backup who has shown some power with a pretty good OBP. The two years gives us a gap to develop a young catcher and not rush anyone, as we did with Clint Sammons. The problem is now that Flowers is gone, who?
