    Maybe, but it might have to come with a asterisk. While Ross is a former Gator player, I don't think he considers himself a Gator. He's a big fan of Auburn and reF$U. His time at UF was more of a 1 year business decision.

    Relatedly, can't believe Cubs fired Maddon. Think they will regret that. He won't be unemployed long.

    I would add Raul Ibanez to the Cubs list of candidates.

    San Francisco is also a possible destination I would think assuming Bochi’s role hasn’t been filled and I just missed it.

    Maybe just me, but I'd rather have Maddon than I guy who has never managed. He does inherit a pretty good roster I recall.

    2x—

    I get what you’re saying and there’s a tremendous amount of validity to your point—

    Guys like Ross that have played the game as he did at the MLB level bring an awful lot to the table from a seasoned standpoint—

    Players want to play for that guy—We’ll all get to see what happens—
