David Ross, unlike most ex-Cubs managers, stays pretty quiet

Firing a Cubs manager is always eventful, whether publicly or as a private affair. Theo Epstein fired Manager Dale Sveum at the Newport Bar during a private conversation, which drew a lot of media attention the following day. Joe Maddon also announced his amicable split at Busch Stadium after the 2019 season ended, though no one believed it was as rosy as they had painted it.

When Don Zimmer was fired, he left a parting shot, charging his drinks to the Tribune Co. Dusty Baker and Jim Riggleman both faced the press after their firings as well, while David Ross had it easier than most. After hearing the news from President Jed Hoyer, Ross was relieved not to have to answer any difficult questions.

Rick Renteria handled his firing in silence, unlike Ross who modestly accepted the decision but didn’t hold back on his thoughts. Despite his disappointment, Ross showed grace and maturity. After all, firing a Cubs’ manager is not a new or uncommon phenomenon.
