Marlins are expected to exercise Jeff Mathis' $1.5 million club option for 2015.

Billy Butler is unlikely to to return to the Royals next season.

Butler was incredibly disappointing this season hitting a career low .271 with 57 runs, nine home runs and 66 RBI for the Royals this season. Butler will likely be a cheap free-agent signing for a club looking for a right handed hitter off the bench.

Royals have some interest in re-signing Norichika Aoki.

Aoki was acquired this past off-season from the Brewers and hit .285 with 63 runs, one home run, 43 RBI and 17 stolen bases for the Royals. Aoki would likely be a cheap signing for the Royals who typically have one of the lower payrolls in baseball.

The Sun-Times reported Wednesday night, the Cubs were ?closing in on a multi-year deal to hire Joe Maddon? and ?an announcement was expected as early as Thursday.

This was expected as soon as Maddon opted of his contract in Tampa Bay for no reason. Maddon has been successful in the past of turning young teams into talented squads rattling off winning seasons consistently. The Cubs will hope that Maddon can do that, if they get this deal done.

After an official scoring change, Jeremy Affeldt was awarded the win and Madison Bumgarner was credited with the save.

This does not matter much in the grand scheme of things, though you can add the five-inning save to the list of things you don't see everyday. Bumgarner's 0.43 ERA was the lowest in a single World Series since Sandy Koufax in 1965.
