Yesterday we learned that catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli
was the Boston Red Sox “No. 1 target,” but friends of free agent Cody Ross
believe the team is in the lead in negotiations for the outfielder, reports
Buster Olney of ESPN.
Friends of Cody Ross believe BOS is in the lead in his neg. on 3-year deal. But sources say there haven't been new talks in last few days.
