After losing the series to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs manager David Ross unintentionally belittled the opposing team while strongly reprimanding his players.
After losing the final game of the series to Pittsburgh 6-8 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA on the 22nd (Korean time), Ross poured out strong remarks in an interview with local media such as ‘ESPN’.
In the process, he said, “A bad team took two out of three games from us. “I believe this team is not as capable as us,” he said, disparaging Pittsburgh.
Until today’s game, the Cubs had an absolute advantage over Pittsburgh with 10 wins and 2 losses. Pittsburgh is currently in 4th place in the district with 72 wins and 81 losses, and the Cubs are in 2nd place with 79 wins and 74 losses.
It is not unreasonable for the Cubs manager to describe Pittsburgh as a ‘team whose capabilities do not match ours.’
Anyway, Pittsburgh took this series. The Cubs showed a loss of concentration by making only two errors in the final game. He recorded 3 hits in 13 at-bats and 11 bases in scoring range.
Ross’s disparaging of the opposing team is ultimately interpreted as an intention to stimulate the players.
“We have to change direction,” Ross said. “It’s my fault, it’s the fault of the players in this room,” he said, raising his voice.토토사이트
He continued, “When things don’t work out the way we want, we have to change direction. Something has to happen. There is a Piryongga to pay attention to details. “There are things worth pointing out everywhere,” he said, urging efforts.
The Cubs, who lost this series, tied for third place with the Miami Marlins in the National League wild card rankings. They are 2 games behind the 2nd place Arizona Diamondbacks. Below, the Cincinnati Reds are trailing by a half game.
Depending on the remaining schedule, advancing to the postseason may be canceled.
“At this point, winning is important,” Ross said. “There is no need for excuses,” he said, once again emphasizing the importance of the results.
