Let’s hope the MVP trophy can make up for the pain of every post-game interviewer - particularly Fox’s Chris Rose - reminding Cody Ross of how unwanted he was.
“Cody, you hit .350 with three home runs this series. Pretty good for a guy the Marlins were eager to get rid of.”
“Philadelphia’s pitchers tried to avoid you as the series went on, just like major league teams at the trade deadline. And women in bars. I don’t have a question.”
“Can you talk about how it feels to be released?”
“You moved from right to left field after the seventh inning. Did that remind you of moving from city to city, as team after team got tired of you?
“Your teammates really love you, Cody. Is this the first time you have felt love from other human beings?”
