Joe Maddon to manage Cubs

Tigers would be smart to give him a call.

 

Nearly every team in baseball would be smart to give him a call, White Sox included.

True, but we know every team will not, including ours.

 

The Tigers, and Dodgers should be the first in line. Both teams also have the stones to dump their current managers for someone better, unlike ours.

 

And both of those teams should be able to come up with the right price, unlike most other teams, including ours.

If I read it right, Friedman leaving the organization triggered this out-clause that Maddon exercised. If I'm understanding that right, it means that if Friedman stayed in Tampa, Maddon's contract had no out-clause.

 

Yeah, if this ISN'T Los Angeles, it's an upset.

Too bad the Twins hired Moliter he would be good there as well.

 

That is a stupid clause for a team to put in a contract unless it stipulated he was going to that team.

 

The Tampa franchise should move anyway.

 

Is the Texas job open?

Ugh, saw a tweet from Toronto sports writer Steve Simmons that there is a rumor at exec level in baseball that he will go to Cubs. Sorry no copy/paste as having phone issues.

It just makes too much sense

 

It would suck for them to have best GM and Manager

He is obviously going to LA. God that franchise is going to be scary.

That's the first thought that comes to mind when you think about, but there have been managerial hires that looked just as slam dunk as Maddon & the Dodgers do on the surface that ended up quietly underwhelming.

Ken Rosenthal expects him to end up with the Cubs as well
