The Angels Might Be Firing Brad Ausmus Today So They Can Pounce on Joe Maddon

Chicago Cubs

It was a rumor just last week, before anything official had happened with Joe Maddon and the Cubs, but now it’s looking like it might really be a thing. The Angels might be trying to pounce on Maddon ASAP, despite the presence of a just-signed manager.

Stay tuned, because this could happen very quickly. Keep in mind: although Maddon was under contract with the Cubs and could not negotiate with another team, he surely knew that a split was coming. That means he would have had plenty of time to at least contemplate a reunion with the Angels if the Cubs were moving on.
