It appears as though the cheerful Cody Ross may no longer be so cheerful when it comes to contract negotiations with the Red Sox.
The Red Sox have seven free agents from their 2012 roster Aaron Cook, James Loney, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Vicente Padilla, Scott Podsednik, David Ortiz, and Cody Ross. The team must decide by 5 p.m.

Cody Ross may be on that list.
