Many may not remember, but this season is not David Ross‘ first rodeo with the Red Sox.
The veteran catcher spent about a month with the team back in 2008, when the Sox reached the American League Championship Series before falling to Tampa Bay in seven games. Ross told NESN’s Tom Caron and Peter Gammons that he was able to learn valuable lessons from Jason Varitek during his short stint in Boston. He hopes to impart similar veteran wisdom on fellow backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who is slated to be the team’s starter behind the plate this season.
