Cody Ross: Cody could have done far better, but he wasn't the worst performer. He hasn't been spectacular as of late, so this series didn't hurt his value much. Ross struck out 3 times in 8 at-bats. That better not be a problem again.
The rotation was decent but they have not improved at all. Morales did very well, but it took a lot of pitches to get though his 5 innings of work. Buchholz has some trouble, but he wasn't awful. A couple of more runs of support and we would be thinking differently about his outing. Beckett settled down nicely after his terrible first inning. They were pretty close to a green arrow this time.
I may be a little generous this time. Mark Melancon was the stand-out performer in the series and continues to impress since returning from Pawtucket. The Bullpen made it interesting most of the series, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
