The Cubs hired arguably the best manager in the league when Maddon joined the team.
The two-time AL Manager of the Year compiled a 781-729 record and .517 win-loss percentage in 11 years of experience. He also led the Tampa Bay Rays to the 2008 AL Pennant, doing so while consistently having one of the younger teams in baseball, as well as one of the lowest payrolls.
Maddon will be joined by a few familiar faces within the organization. He will be working alongside bench coach Dave Martinez, who was with the Rays. Maddon will also reunite with pitcher Edwin Jackson, who was with Tampa Bay from 2006 up until 2008.
Maddon has proven outstanding success and is capable of taking the Cubs to the next level.
