Ross is awesome and one of my favorite Cubs, but my biggest fear is that it’d be more of the same since he’s an ex teammate and friends with most of them, like everyone’s buddy. Same kind of thing has happened where I work where someone will go from a hoseman to an officer, creates conflicts at times, they usually get moved to another shift to try to avoid issues. There’s even a book about it called “from buddy to boss.”
@HOZER, I am all in on Ross. We need a new face. It is time and the players love him. We have no business missing the playoffs with the team we have, some of that is on Maddon. Regarding Kimbrel he has blown 4 saves already and has been complete garbage. I hate to be so negative but he was paid huge money to close games out like last night. He gave up 2 HR's on his 1st 2 pitches. Just unacceptable.
