The Chicago Cubs have had a rough go of it lately regarding their offense.

The offense has not gotten on track with several of the Cubs stars hitting around the mendoza line.

Cubs manager David Ross spoke to the media during pregame of Monday's contest against the Detriot Tigers and was asked about his team's offense.

"We’re going to live and die with the core guys here,” he said. We’re going to be as good as those guys are. That’s our strength."

"Those are the guys that are going to carry the day for us,” Ross said. "Those are guys that if we want to go to the place that we expect to go, those guys have to be good. You’ve got to trust them."

Currently the team is batting .224 which is not what the Cubs will need if they want to win games consistently down the stretch.

Hopefully, the Cubs offense will come alive in Detriot and some of the standout performers will be back to normal like Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, Willson Contreras, and others.
