Everybody Loves Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, Except Maybe the Umpires
As of this writing, the Chicago Cubs have won 101 games, clinched their division, and sewed up home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs. There's excitement about this team that hasn't been felt in ages, and many give credit to manager Joe Maddon, a man so beloved in Chicago that he'll probably never have to pay for dinner or drinks again. Ever.
