Ross doesn't expect to be suspended for arguing
BOSTON -- As irate as Cody Ross became while being ejected from Wednesday's game, he never made contact with home-plate umpire Alfonso Marquez. Therefore, he doesn't anticipate a suspension.

"Why would I be suspended?" wondered Ross, while otherwise avoiding comment.

Manager Bobby Valentine is hopeful that his outfielder won't lose any games for arguing a pitch that, according to television replays, clearly looked low. Ross represented the tying run in the bottom of the eighth when he was rung up on a 3-2 pitch.

"Well, I don't know how the system works," said Valentine. "I would guess that I wouldn't have any concerns after I know how the system works. It used to be, you'd have to touch someone or say something really bad. It seemed like a guy who was into the moment got excited. That used to be acceptable, but I don't know how the system is working these days."
