Move over Tony Danza. You too, Slim Thug. In the Bay Area, Cody Ross is the boss. Even if you didn’t buy a t-shirt, Ross hitting like Mickey Mantle was the biggest surprise of the 2010 postseason. Without Ross, who went from playing in oppressive humidity in front of 5,000 fans a night in Miami to playing in front of raucous, beard-celebrating crowds.
As you’ll see in the interview below, the beard’s still there. Today I asked Ross about the good life, his friend Dan Uggla (Ross mentions that the Giants were interested in Uggla, a tidbit that was always rumored but never fully confirmed the last couple years), the love he’s getting in his native New Mexico and his shopping habits … and much, much more!
