The Chicago Cubs are parting ways with manager Joe Maddon just three years after the Cubs won the 2016 World Series, their first championship since 1908. Maddon led the Cubs to an 84-78 record in the 2019 season, a far cry from the 103-58 record that the Cubs held on the way to a World Series championship in 2016. When Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was asked about the departure of his manager, he said that he was surprised that Joe was even in this situation “because of what he’s been able to do here and what he’s been able to change, the culture and stuff like that.”

Joe Maddon looks to be a top contender for the San Diego Padres manager position for the 2020 season, and this could mean big things for the Padres. San Diego has two star players in Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr., with Tatis Jr. being just 20 years old. If Maddon takes over the Padres organization, Padres fans will have a lot to look forward to, coupling with their high expectations for the organization as well.
