Thanks Joe. It was amazing being there in Cleveland right up front for Games 6 and 7 of the 2016 World Series in Cleveland to witness the end of the longest drought in American sports history. What a great and colorful coach. “Try Not to Suck” is one of my new favorite sayings. The Cubs just announced that Joe Maddon will NOT return next season. Even though I and everyone else saw this coming, it is still shocking to read the news. I think this change could be good for Maddon and the Cubs, but only time will tell.

Writing a post about Joe Maddon is very difficult as it appears most Cubs fans are in either one of two camps. There are the fans that absolutely adore the man and believe every managerial move he makes is pure genius regardless of the result. While others believe he is constantly making mistakes that cost the team from winning. Have you checked out this 7 Chicago Cubs shirt, Chicago Cubs Rumors shirt?

This potential could be said about a lot of managers, but in all my years watching and following baseball, this is different. Both camps are right! I believe Joe Maddon could be the best/worst manager of all time. In explaining my reasons why, I am sure I will upset both the Joe Maddon lovers and haters. What made Joe Maddon a great manger: He brought an upbeat half glass full kind of energy to the team. Players loved his attitude and played hard for him.
