Recently, Joe Maddon opted out of his contract in Tampa Bay so he wouldn't have to manage that sad sack of a team that was obviously going nowhere fast. Even more recently have been the reports about Maddon going to the Cubs. Well, apparently the Cubs and Maddon have agreed on a blockbuster deal or on the verge of agreeing to said deal to have Maddon manage the team. The Cubs have a young team with lots of talent and a much larger budget than TB and most other teams in the league. The Cubs need a manager who knows how to take a losing team and make them a winning team and needs to end that nearly 100 year championship drought. Joe Maddon needs a team who is willing to do what it takes to make it to the World Series. The way the Cubs played towards the end of the season, there was lots of promise. If this deal gets completed, the Cubs are infinitely better and could be a playoff team. The biggest obstacles I see for the Cubs are their lack of experience and a difficult division. How crazy would it be to see the Cubs and the Indians, the two teams with the longest championship droughts in baseball, play each other in the World Series? Almost as crazy as a Lions v Browns Super Bowl?
