We said during the Cubs’ run to a World Series Championship that David Ross is pretty much a made man. Whether it’d be working any job he wants as a part of Theo Epstein’s staff or going on some solo venture, we knew he wasn’t done with baseball. We were right.
It’s unclear how Ross will balance both jobs while having a family life, but this points signs to his position under Theo being more of a consulting gig. I’m sure he could join the Cubs full time if he wanted to. Hell, I’m half convinced he’s being groomed to replace Maddon as their next manager.
