Chicago Cubs: A fan favorite with ties to the current clubhouse

If it was up to the fan base, I’m almost positive they’d hire former World Series champion David Ross. “Grandpa Rossy” is and will forever be a fan favorite. Of late, he’s been mentioned as candidate for the Minnesota Twins managerial vacancy, but it’s hard to imagine him passing up the chance to return to Chicago.

Of course, that also depends on his personal motivations. He retired looking forward to spending more time with his family – and he may not be ready to return to the grind of a big league lifestyle just yet. a

Ross would be a great fit on the Cubs’ bench. He holds longstanding ties to a majority of the players on the roster. Obviously, he’s someone that seemingly everyone can get along with. As a former catcher, he may very well prove to be the next Mike Scioscia or Mike Matheny. Both of these men, of course, are former catchers who’ve been successful as big league skippers.
