“The end goal is to be as good as you can be come September, come October,” Cubs catcher David Ross says.
“These 162 games, it’s a grind, it’s a roller coaster,” Ross says.
Ross believed that the Reds’ hitting Kris Bryant was intentional.
“That’s not acceptable for Jake,” pitching coach Chris Bosio says of ho-hum results recently for Arrieta. “That’s not acceptable for us.”
“You got to let these guys learn,” Ross says. “They’ve got great swings.”

“It’s definitely something that’s on the table,” Heyman says of the White Sox possibly firing Ventura.
Hoyer expects the Cubs to add some pitching help later in the summer.
Keeping runners close to the bag was an offseason focus for Ross after left-hander Jon Lester had such struggles in 2015.
“I’m on cloud nine,” Ross says of catching Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter.
