ESPN’s Jesse Rogers took to the air on ESPN 1000 Chicago’s Waddle and Silvy show this afternoon to provide the latest update on the Cubs manager situation.
Rogers told Waddle and Silvy, “Don’t be surprised if David Ross is named (Cubs) manager this Thursday.” The former catcher, 42, spent time this season as a special assistant to baseball operations with the Cubs in addition to his color commentator duties for ESPN. Ross has been a highly amplified name on the list of candidates for the Cubs open manager spot ever since the firing of Joe Maddon at the end of the season. If the report is true and Ross is hired, it would be interesting to see how he bonds with the team since he played alongside several current Cubs players. This is the first huge news coming from the North Side in what Cubs fans hope will be an action-packed offseason. Will Grandpa Rossy be the new man in charge?
