Report: David Ross to sign with the Cubs


We heard a Jon Heyman report this morning that the Padres were going to get David Ross. Nope:

This makes sense, as Ross and Jon Lester had great chemistry in Boston. Now, presumably, he will be Lester’s personal catcher. Which, yes, takes Miguel Montero’s bat out of the lineup when the Cubs have their ace on the hill, but if it makes Lester happier — and more effective — it’ll be OK.
