But it does not receive any heat from above. And he’s not going anywhere anytime soon to hear Cubs president Jed Hoyer talk about him.

“He’s done a great job,” said Hoyer, who signed a two-year extension with Ross until 2024 before the start of the season (with the club’s option for 2025). “Every conversation we have is about how to make guys better, so I don’t see any issues with him.”

Ross, who led the COVID-19 season in his first year as manager to win the 2020 division title and finish as the only team without a positive player test, has since been given rosters with declining wages and talent as the Cubs were cut and fired. main players.

“It’s difficult,” Hoyer said. “Some of the things that we planned, or some of the platoons, or some of the things that we hoped for, didn’t materialize. So at times he wasn’t given the matches he wanted or things didn’t work out the way we probably planned. And that’s why we played a lot of times with a short bench because of injuries, or our pen got tired and that’s why he had to stay away from the guys.

“These are things that, for obvious reasons, fans don’t always know, like who is down, who is injured, who is available and who is not,” Hoyer added. “I know such things. So I know what kind of restrictions he had to work with because of our injuries and things like that.”

The part that remains unsaid is about Hoyer’s roster set to blow up again at the deadline, full of one-year fillers, a few holdovers on the trade deck, and two perennial free agents (Markus Stroman, Seiya Suzuki) that didn’t perform consistently. and both of whom are on the wounded list.

“All things considered, I think he did a great job,” Hoyer said of Ross. “He is upset. I am disappointed. We sit there at night and talk, but all the talk is really productive.”
