Even in a shortened season, the hiring of David Ross by the Chicago Cubs is clearly paying off.
As soon as the Chicago Cubs fired Joe Maddon before the conclusion of the 2019 MLB regular season, many wondered who the Cubs next manager would be. After multiple names were floated around, Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer settled on David Ross, who had won a world series with the team back in 2016.
All throughout the offseason, many wondered whether hiring Ross was a good idea. One of the main reasons that was cited was the fact that Ross would now be responsible for overseeing guys like Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, his former teammates whom he won a world series with.
