David Ross is getting the brunt of frustrated Chicago Cubs fans. Monday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers has elicited strong reactions from an irritated fanbase.

The Cubs collapsed in backbreaking fashion on Monday against the rival Brewers. The Brew Crew were down 6-0 early after the Cub offense erupted. But the Brewers clawed their way back, and things soured big. Jahmai Jones slugged a home run in his first at-bat at the MLB level in two years.

Milwaukee grabbed the lead late and did not concede it. Thus, the fourth-place Cubs lost an extremely winnable game to their National League Central rivals from up north.

Cub fans weren’t happy at all—frustrations with Ross date back to his first year on the job. The former World Series champion hasn’t had a great deck to work with, but that doesn’t negate some of the decisions made.

Cubs fans out in droves and voiced their dissatisfaction with David Ross.

Chicago is in a woeful position this season. They are 38-45 and seven games back of the first-place Brewers. The Cubs are also 7.5 games back of an NL Wild Card spot. It hasn’t gotten any easier for the Cubs, and days like Monday make it exponentially more challenging.

It wouldn’t be the best day for David Ross to go on Twitter, let’s just leave it at that.
