In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
I just got a call from John Farrell.
He wants to send you to the Russian Front.
1. Drew has been terrific at his position, no messing with it now.
2. Using Ross or Salty at catcher is irrelevant, the team gains experience and defense with Ross. They gain a hitter with more power in Salty. Neither will be the difference between winning or losing a single game all by himself.
3. Nava will get his chance....he won't be batting second. Take that to the bank.
4. While we are at it, Pedroia moves to 1st and Ortiz plays 2nd?....neither one will happen unless fat little animals that live in a sty take to the skies with wings. ( W H E N P I G S F L Y).
Disagree on the Ross/Salty analysis, Zilla. Ross has plenty of power and has been taking better swings than Salty in his limited chances in the playoffs. Salty's power adavantage is diminished by his inability to put wood on the ball. Furthermore, Ross is more likely to keep Peavy's head on straight.
Agree, Ross is a Salty Vet.
