With the Chicago Cubs enjoying an off-day before their 10-game homestand, David Ross earned his spot in the Dancing with the Stars finals on Monday night.
It’s a familiar phrase: #WeNeverQuit. It’s inscribed on the band of the Chicago Cubs’ World Series rings and, on Monday night, it rang true again. Against all odds, former catcher David Ross advanced to this season’s Dancing with the Stars finals.
All night, the four-judge panel offered comments about how happy they were that Ross was on the season and how much he brought to the show. Clearly, they (and most everyone else) expected Ross’ magical journey to come to a close Monday.
But Ross, his partner Lindsay Arnold and Cubs fans across the nation pulled it off, sending Major League Baseball’s first DWTS representative to the finals next week.
Meanwhile, Chicago enjoyed an off-day ahead of a big homestand that opens Tuesday. The team welcomes the Cincinnati Reds to the Friendly Confines, hoping to turn around a disappointing run.

Veteran John Lackey takes the ball in the opener against the Reds. Yesterday, we looked at the team’s potential rotation options past 2017. Given Jake Arrieta and Lackey hit the open market, it’s a looming question for the front office.
Despite what more than a handful of people think, the team has a solid bullpen. One of the more overrated names in there, Pedro Strop, is more dominant than you think.
