Cubs fans line up to see Joe Maddon one last time

Can the Cubs replace Joe Maddon with someone better? Easier said than done

Can the Cubs replace Joe Maddon with someone better? Easier said than done

I think the interest would be there. But I also try to tell guys the truth in love, and so I think the best managers I have had do that exact same thing - they have great conversations, they communicate, they walk that line between authority and leadership and being a friend as well. The Cubs made four post-season appearances with Maddon in the dugout, winning the World Series in 2016 for the first time in 108 years. It makes you think about a lot of things.

"David Ross has a lot of great things going for him, I would say".

"I think for this group at this time we need to find a way to create a culture and environment that compels every player to push himself to be the absolute best version of himself", Epstein said, "to be the very absolute best player that he can be".

"Would love them to be Cubs, but again, all these players, these are guys we have to be open-minded about, too". I think that's the line you've got to kind of walk with players and you never know until you are in that seat.

Epstein sounds sick and exhausted of the 2016 nostalgia, so if he chooses Ross to be the next manager of the Cubs, it won't be because of Ross' Game 7 home run or his friendships with Anthony Rizzo and Jon Lester. After retiring from the field, Ross was picked up as a special assistant to baseball operations for the Cubs, according to the MLB.

"I've always looked at Rossy as a coach when he played here", Bryant said. "I'm sure waiting for that phone call". The pros and the cons. I mean, he's the biggest mentor in this game other than [Maddon]. Can it work? Yes.

The Chicago Cubs ended their regular season by embarking on a new direction on Sunday, parting ways with manager Joe Maddon after five largely successful seasons with the baseball franchise.

"Initially I was disappointed, but I know he's going to be a legend forever", said fan Zachary Walters.

Epstein didn't specifically name other possible candidates on Monday, though Cubs bench coach Mark Loretta could also be in the mix.
