OK as this is an off day and we can only speculate on dumping Lou for so long ( If they have not done it yet, I don't see it happening), a few small bits of information.Matt Murton is hitting .343 which is third best in his league and tops on his team. Looks like he found a good place, but I actually wouldn't mind a nice right handed OF who hits for contact.
Here is a nice bit on Maddux from Austin Bibens-Dirkx
"Having Greg Maddux as one of the guys in the organization is nice," Bibens-Dirkx said of the four-time Cy Young winner-turned-Cubs special assistant. "I sat down with him after my last start, and the knowledge he has is ridiculous. He was predicting pitches before they would happen and what the results would be. He talked with me about philosophy and when to throw certain pitches in different counts. It's nice to have him around."
And another one from Doug Glanville's new book
"Insecurity also makes players creatures of habit, doing the same things over and over, in the same order - at least, until a rival catches on." Glanville says he would always enter the batter's box with his head down, until the great Greg Maddux took note of it: "One game while my head was down, the ball was halfway to home plate before I looked up. Easy strike. Advantage Maddux."
