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.
