Joe Maddon to Manage Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs will have a new manager for the 2015 season. Joe Maddon will move to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, sources tell CBSSports, in a deal that may make him the highest paid manager in the National League. Maddon, the former manager of the Tampa Bay Rays, was rumored to be in talks with the Cubs after he opted to become a free agent. Current Cubs manager Rick Renteria was already told the team was considering hiring Maddon.
