David Ross even got the starting nod over six-time All-Star Brian McCann in the 2012 NL Wild Card game.

The Red Sox have already made two inexpensive free-agent signings this offseason in catcher David Ross and outfielder Jonny Gomes.

Signing Ross for $3.2 million per year and Gomes for $5 million per year could prove to be great bargains over the next two seasons for the Red Sox.

Ross is an under-the-radar, great defensive catcher who throws out opposing baserunners well and has recorded a low catcher’s ERA in each of the last four seasons.

Gomes is a great leader and clubhouse influence who's hit left-handed pitching well over his career. He's also a dead pull hitter who could crush many balls off and over the Green Monster in the next two seasons.

Both players were signed at a low cost for only two years, and both could provide bigger impacts for the Red Sox than other free agents who require a more costly and demanding asking price.

In honor of Black Friday, what follows are five ideas for inexpensive free-agent signings the Red Sox will likely consider this offseason, all of which could be great bargains in 2013.
