David Ross ‘drawn’ to Cubs’ dugout as potential Joe Maddon successor

first_img“I think it’s one of the best jobs in baseball,” he said on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight.” Ross works as an MLB analyst for the network. “I’ve got a lot of close ties with those guys. I think the interest would be there. I think my heart is drawn to that dugout a little bit.”MORE: Six other candidates to replace Joe MaddonRoss also said he’s “sure waiting for that phone call” if the Cubs’ front office decides to consider him for the job. He is already on the team’s payroll as a special assistant in baseball operations. Ross, though, did make it a point to say he has a “nice job” at ESPN that allows him to spend time with his family.Ross, 42, has never been a manager or coach, but Cubs players viewed him as a coach when he served as the team’s backup catcher/personal catcher for Jon Lester in 2015 and 2016. “Grandpa Rossy” retired after the Cubs won the World Series in ’16.  MORE: Where will Joe Maddon manage in 2020?”From the very get-go, I felt like this guy will be a manager some day for sure,” quoted Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant as saying. Maddon and the Cubs agreed to part ways Sunday after five seasons together. Chicago missed the playoffs this year after four consecutive trips under Maddon. A breakup was expected after Epstein allowed Maddon to become a lame duck in 2019, the final year of his contract.Ross tweeted a tribute to Maddon after the news was announced.It was a honor having the opportunity to play for Joe Maddon and winning a Championship with him during one of the greatest runs in the history of the Chicago Cubs. I learned a tremendous amount from him and wish him continued success in this game.— David Ross (@D_Ross3) September 29, 2019Ross has shown interest in managing in the recent past. He interviewed last October with the Twins, who hired Rocco Baldelli to replace Paul Molitor. David Ross would welcome an opportunity to succeed Joe Maddon as Cubs manager.Ross said Sunday that running the club with which he ended his playing career appeals to him.last_img read more
