David Ross...the blank slate.

There's no denying that his history with this team was seen as a plus. There's no denying that he's a respected leader and a driven competitor. And one more thing that cannot be denied...his managerial record.

David Ross, Cubs manager is currently 0-0.

Lots of questions: How much of a W-L difference in this team, as it's presently configured, can Mr. Ross make? How will he handle his first clubhouse / press crisis? How well will he interact with management? In other words, how will he handle stress, second-guessing and adversity?

And finally how will WE handle the way he handles this team...the one that Theo hands him (and we fans) to start next year?

Buckle up Cubs fans, because we're about to find out. I'm ready...

How about you?

The last thing Ross said in the statement after he got the actual job was, "Now let's get to work."
Love that.
