Joe Maddon 13
A day after the Cubs' 2018 season came to a disappointing end, fans and media are speculating on the future of the team, particularly as it relates to their manager Joe Maddon. One fan, who is blissfully unaware of the horrid performance by many former Cubs managers, thinks Maddon should be fired immediately.
With his team running on fumes and grasping to a one-game lead in the NL Central, Cubs manager Joe Maddon pulled another wacky rabbit out of his hat Wednesday night, instructing his players and coaches to dress up like zombies before their flight to Washington D.C.
"Look, you've got to score more than one run to win most ballgames," said manager Joe Maddon. "We're going to shake things up tonight."
"With Brandon [Morrow] on the shelf, we need someone who can slam the door at the end of games," said Maddon. "Anthony is the logical choice."
"We were on our way to the airport and Javy comes up to me all sad," said Maddon. "'Hey coach,' he says, 'after the series I just had in Los Angeles, do you think I can just stay and play baseball here?'"
His Cubs may have been eliminated from the postseason Thursday night, but manager Joe Maddon is reportedly still running around the team's clubhouse in his jockstrap, in what insiders call a "crazy" outburst from the recently unhinged skipper.
