The Chicago Cubs have clearly not had a good start to the 2022 season.
For it seems that the Cubs are back where they were prior to having won their curse-breaking 2016 World Series title.
They sit in fourth place in the National League Central division with a 9-18 record and are nine games back of the first-place Milwaukee Brewers.
However, despite their early struggles, Cubs manager David Ross isn’t panicking yet and believes that there are still some positives to take out of everything and some good things yet to come.

Ross Sticks By His Cubs
It’s good to have a manager who can steady everybody’s hand when things aren’t going right for your team.
Ross clearly believes in what the Cubs have and isn’t ready to throw in the towel just yet.
He believes that he has good players on his roster and that if they start playing better, they can be a good team.
However, with them being nine games below the .500 mark, it’s very possible that the Cubs may already be buried in the NL Central, as the Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals are battling it out for the top spot.
Those two teams are the only teams in the NL Central with winning records as of now.
But it’s clear right now that Ross isn’t done yet and believes that more is to come for his ballclub.
Time will tell if his assessment is correct.
It’ll take a miracle for the Cubs to get back into contention, but nothing is impossible.
