This seems almost inevitable, yes? Jon Paul Morosi:

The Atlanta Braves, looking to add an outfield bat, have interest in signing free-agent outfielder Cody Ross, according to a major-league source.

With Torii Hunter likely choosing between the Rangers and Tigers, the Braves are pursuing another of the top right-handed bats on the market. Ross posted an .807 OPS with 22 home runs in 130 games with the Boston Red Sox this year.

They could do worse. They have holes in left field and third base, and Martin Prado will play in one of those positions.  Assuming that the Braves aren’t in Torii Hunter or Josh Hamilton‘s tax bracket, Cody Ross is a better option than anyone else, either at third or left. Him or Ryan Ludwick, I guess.

    These Cody Ross stories are kind of turning into a joke.

    The Braves lost one Ross, so why not replace him on the roster with another Ross. Give him the same uniform number, but do not let him try to catch.

      Sadly enough, that could be the point that sells the deal to Liberty Media. “You mean we don’t have to purchase new uniforms? By all means sign him then.”
