3 Chicago Cubs role changes we would already make after a week of games - David Ross would be replaced as manager
It has been a less-than-desirable start to the season for Cubs' manager David Ross. Ross made a pair of poor decisions in Saturday's loss to the Brewers and his decision on Monday to let third baseman Patrick Wisdom, the Cubs' greatest power threat, bunt with two runners on base in the seventh inning of a game in which they trailed still has fans irritated.
Ross making poor in-game decisions is not necessarily anything that is new. Many fans are noticing Ross' questionable in-game managing for the first time as the manager really hasn't had many expectations placed on him since he took the position in 2020. Sure, he has been the perfect bridge between the front office and the roster, but he hasn't been much beyond that. The first week of games has only further proven that Ross is likely the manager that brings a team to the doorstep of contending with the next manager being the one that is invited in.
