Joe Maddon Offers a Classy Thanks to Tampa Bay Rays, Players, and Community

Chicago Cubs News, MLB News and Rumors

The obligatory, but still classy, thank you ad in the newspaper upon leaving town:


It’s probably been easy for Cubs fans to forget that Maddon was leaving behind an organization, a fan base, and a community with which he has a strong connection. It’s not unlike when Theo Epstein left Boston.

That’s undoubtedly a bummer for Tampa Bay (as it was for Boston), and gives the Cubs something of a mercenary feel.

But I’m OK with that.
