Greg Maddux To Rejoin Chicago Cubs

Greg Maddux is back with the Chicago he didn't come out of retirement he has been named the assistant General Manager to Jim Hendry. He will assist the coaching staffs at the major and minor league levels.

This is a brilliant move by the Ricketts family. Bringing in Maddux is going to do wonders for this organization. He is a great baseball mind and his ability to break down the game with ultimately help this team in the long run. That has been one thing this organization has always lacked is someone who knows the game of baseball inside and out. There is no better person to hire than Greg Maddux.

Well this is good news. With Greg Maddux expertise and experience in playing baseball he will surely be a good assistant general manager of Chicago Cubs. Not unlike with Mark McGwire who confessed recently with his steroid usage at his time. I just hope Chicago Clubs wont tolerate such idea of injecting their players since it is one way of cheating. Good luck Greg and make us proud once again in giving quality and best trainings for your team. Make us proud Chicago Club.
