In the interest of giving credit where credit is due, Braves nation owes a major applause for the work David Ross has put in thus far.
When it comes to offense the 2009 Braves are clearly lacking. Their best hitter Chipper Jones is out of the lineup a lot, and Brian McCann has been plagued with an eye problem all year.
Casey Kotchman has been hitting clean up. Yeah, let that soak in your brain for a second.
The play of Ross has some even talking about the possibility of Heap (McCann) playing left field or first base while he adjusts to the new glasses and gets ready to hit major league pitching again.
Although this young season has been quite rocky in Atlanta, the play of guys like Ross, Infante, and Jurrjens could make even the most pessimistic of fans smile. Throw in a Jeff Francoeur who is doing much better and the Braves might be able to do more than contend for third in the NL East.
As far as Ross is concerned, this is a wonderful audition for him. There are many teams out there that could possibly contend and need catching help. If Ross keeps up the good performance he will have considerable trade deadline period value. I would not be surprised if a move were made involving Ross at that time.
