Joe Maddon’s Son Weighs In On His Dad’s Future With The Cubs
If you follow Joe Maddon's son on Twitter, you know that he isn't afraid to speak his mind.
There are a couple of things that make this tweet from Joe's son very interesting. We don't know if Joseph (the son) is speaking to the fans on this or Cubs management.
There is a section of the Cubs fan base that is unhappy with Joe Maddon. They don't like his managerial style and think that the Cubs won the World Series in 2016 in spite of Maddon, not because of anything he did. I personally disagree with these people. I will agree that Joe Maddon isn't the best Xs and Os manager out there but for 162 games, I don't think I'd rather have too many other guys running the team. I do wish that there was a sound strategy guy that had Joe's ear for big games, but no one gets their team ready for the playoffs better than Joe Maddon.
Now things get interesting if this tweet is directed at Cubs management. The story we have been told is that management is happy with Joe, they just don't want to sign him to a long contract extension right now. I'm also happy with that but if Joe has shared something with his son about the front office not being happy with what he's doing, then this is kind of a big deal.
He retweeted something later that might lean towards him tweeting at management.
