Any manager who has been in Major League Baseball long enough will have wild stories to tell. Cubs manager David Ross didn’t even make it through a full spring training before things got weird.
Ross’ first 21⁄2 years on the job have featured a 60-game season, a trade deadline that sent out a third of his Opening Day roster and the second-longest work stoppage in MLB history.
What a way to start a new chapter in a career.
Ross has received rave reviews from his employers for the way he has handled the circumstances.
