Some Mike Maddux News

Several tweets, one after another, came out Monday afternoon regarding the possibility of Mike Maddux becoming Cubs manager. To sum up, he's withdrawn from consideration in Boston, and it's summed up pretty well by Rangers beat writer T.R. Sullivan:

Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux confirmed Monday that he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Red Sox manager’s job.

He has not done the same with the Cubs. He is still scheduled to interview with them but said he wants to talk it over with his family on Monday night.

Which pretty much confirms what you see here:

"We're in a good situation," Maddux says of his Ranger job. "My family moved here, the kids will be in school for 3 more years here."

This is totally understandable. While I'd love to have Mike Maddux as Cubs manager, if it's not the right fit for his family, he should stay where he is. On the other hand, if his family is OK with it, I hope Theo and Jed will hire him.

As always, we await further developments.
