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.”
