Catching up on hot topics with David Ross

David Ross can be anything he wants when his playing career is over — a major league manager, an excellent analyst in a broadcast booth, a great catching instructor. Ask anyone who’s associated with the Red Sox, if you have a pie for the most impactful players on the team, Ross, the backup catcher, would receive a generous slice.

It’s all about his feel for the game, feel for the players in the clubhouse, feel for the pitching staff and what makes it click. Ross fits in so well. With A.J. Pierzynski on board, Ross remains the backup, but the team will go back to its original plan (before Ross’s playing time was affected by two concussions) in which Ross will play more than a traditional backup, likely in 60-70 games.
