The Cubs finally broke their silence, firing manager Rick Renteria one week after Joe Maddon opted out of his contract with the Tampa Bay Rays, becoming a coveted free agent.
No one will remember how Joe Maddon got the job as long as he wins big at Wrigley Field.

“Outside the organization, outside the city, around baseball, the story is the Cubs are coming fast and the Cubs are coming strong.”
