…hello again, David Ross

Hey Genre, or Fro…..I think we need a Cubs post, asap. We have a real serious problem on our hands, I’m afraid.

Dave Says:

I’m giving David Ross a pass until he actually screws up significantly. Joe Espada was probably the best choice but lets see what Ross does.

***************************

chucky, thank you for the gentle prod…I’m buried with work. Like Dave, I’ll give Ross a pass for now. I expected Espada to be hired when they brought him back for 2nd interview.

Ernie, what do you make of this?

    Phillies got the right manager. Mark my words, Cubs will regret this hire. This team doesn’t need another “buddy,” they need a disciplinarian who will hold them accountable. Joe Girardi was that guy. Another dumb move by an organization with an identity of dumb moves. Bears are dumb. Bulls are dumb. Cubs are ultra dumb. Chicago sports does it again.

    Thank you genre. And thank you Ernie. What Ernie just said was the precise reason I asked for this post. Remember back at the very beginning of “the rebuild”? Does anybody remember who was the popular choice for manager then? Fucking Ryne Sandberg! A legendary 2nd baseman of mythological proportions! He alone could take the Cubs to the promised land. Don’t worry about the fact that Sandberg had a grand total of 0 days as a manager. Ignore the fact that at that point the Cubs were dismantling the roster in order to drop payroll and lose 90-100 games a year in order to land as many high draft picks as possible. In other words, the next Cubs manager was there to fall on the sword for a few years until the Cubs were World Series contenders. Cubs brass made the correct decision and passed on Sandberg, hiring instead Dale Sveum instead. What happened then? The Cubs stripped the roster bare, and were NL bottom feeders for awhile. In fact, they sucked so fucking much they fired Sveum and hired Ricky Diarrhea for one year to keep the managers seat warm for Joe Maddon. Five years later, and after the Cubs make the playoffs 4 out of 5 of those years, and actually become World Series Champions in 2016, they are in the market for Maddon’s replacement. And unbelievably, Joe Girardi is on the fucking market!!!! What do our Cubs do instead? In the feel good moment of the year, THEY FUCKING HIRE DAVID FUCKING ROSS!!!! A likable man, popular with management and players. Problem is however, the only experience he has is carrying Jon Lester’s golf bag around. Translation: NO GODDAMNED EXPERIENCE AT ALL. Al Yellon has a goddamn boner right now, I bet. Buckle up men. It’ll get bumpy from here.

    I’ve only got a minute…so, I’ll keep it brief.
    I’m thankful for all that David Ross did to help bring a WS victory back to Chicago. AND, I really think Ross is a great/likeable guy.

    That being said, I don’t like this hire…at all. There’s simply not enough separation from him and the players from 3 years ago. I’m not saying that he can’t be a disciplinarian…but, he certainly can’t command the same respect as he would if this were 10 years from now and he was managing players that he didn’t already have “history” with. He should have had some additional experience under his belt.

    For our sake, I truly hope I’m wrong. Regardless, I was NOT sad to see Joe Maddon go. Again, very thankful for what happened under his “watch”, but he drove me batshit crazy (like Ernie alludes to all of the time). His mismanagement of our pitching staff damn-near cost us the Series in 2016.

    I’m out!

    Later,
    Jimmy D.
