Giants | Decision to start Cody Ross in right field was made prior to Jose Guillen investigation

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said his decision to make OF Cody Ross the everyday right fielder was made before learning of any allegations linking OF Jose Guillen to HGH, because Guillen had been bothered by neck soreness, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Mercury News. "I told Jose this: I thought it was pretty evident he wasn't 100 percent," Bochy said. "He did all he could with treatment on his neck. So Cody Ross would've been in right field even if Jose was on the club. Jose would've been in more of a pinch-hitter role ... in my eyes, he helped us win a couple ballgames. But the neck bothered him more than he let on. Once we got there (to the playoffs), I knew Cody was in right field."
