Cubs News: Rizzo to Ross: "We wanna win the ring, and then hoist you up like Rocky"

by - Senior Editor -

Cubs players Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and David Ross discussed the veteran catcher's retirement plan on The Players' Tribune website recently.

"That’s how we wanna end it," Rizzo said via Player's Tribune. "Hopefully that can be the last photo on the Instagram account. The ring. Let’s go get the ring, post a photo of it, and when we send you off into retirement, we’ll retire the (Grandpa Rossy) Instagram account right along with you."

The Grandpa Rossy Instagram account that is managed by Rizzo and Bryant has an impressive 126K followers.

Rizzo added that he wants to win the World Series and end Ross' career on a wonderful note.

"We wanna win the ring, and then hoist you up like Rocky," Rizzo said. "Because you deserve it. You’ve been in this game for a long time, and you’ve done a lot of great things."

Someone had a rough day of catching drills today.. But thats what friends are for! #yearlongretirementparty
