CHICAGO — The Cubs will announce the hiring of former Tampa Bay Rays skipper Joe Maddon as the 54th manager in franchise history on Monday, the team announced in a release.

The team set the stage for Maddon’s hiring by firing current skipper Rick Renteria earlier Friday.

Team president Theo Epstein released a statement praising Renteria while indicating Maddon’s availability was too enticing to pass up.

Cub’s officials hope that Maddon can help to break the Cub’s 107 year drought.  Maddon knows he can.  Just ask him.  He has invented the game of Baseball.  Wonder if he will bring in a  untitled Warthog to motivate Cub’s players.  He has stooped to such methods in Tampa.  EDB
