David Ross: Red Sox Focused On Baseball, Not Trade Deadline (Video)


Boston Red Sox catcher David Ross lost a batterymate with starting pitcher Jake Peavy shipped off to the San Francisco Giants, but he said the team doesn’t want to think about who else might be leaving the clubhouse by Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline.

“I don’t like that part,” Ross told NESN’s Jamie Erdahl before Saturday’s game at Tampa Bay. “I’m not a big fan of that. I feel like it’s family in there, and when you lose a family member, it stinks, so we don’t think about that too much. We try to stay focused on baseball.

“We have a lot of good veteran guys who could help other teams, but if we lose them here, for the guys that are still here, it’s going to be sad.”

Check out what else Ross said about this season in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
