For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in 2015 draft as well their their regular pick. The teams with the 10 worst records (top 11 picks) have their first round pick protected if they signed a qualified free agent this offseason.

don't be scared...i don't bite.
forgot soriano was part of pinella's offseason.
either way, pinhead made 3+ million a year to pretend he's a top tier strategical babysitter. if the ownership group wants to play poverty again they don't need to be throwing 2-3+ million at a manager. hopefully they're not going to play poverty.
"include more than manager duties"
I was thinking events coordinator. He does like his themed plane trips.
According to WSCR
Bernstein's Cub insiders say "Cubs are ready to talk to Maddon. Want to keep Ricky in some capacity."
Also said Maddon's position could "include more than manager duties"
Don't know how he can have front office/manager role.
would be just as wrong...
Maybe he meant Dusty?
we've already been through the "spend a little on a manager rather than a lot on players" fan distraction/placation thing
I know better than to reply, but Lou was hired the same offseason they signed Soriano, Lilly and DeRosa. Cubs were top 3 in payroll by end of his tenure.
I believe they will be doing both.
if the cubs spend millions of dollars on a manager rather than the team this leadership group can attach their faces to a fat cock.
we've already been through the "spend a little on a manager rather than a lot on players" fan distraction/placation thing...lou pinella ended up quitting early on the team and it wasn't any better for the trouble.
if they wanna spend on the team and waste money on a manager...whatever, though.

First guess from Maddon friends:Cubs, Mets

My guess on Joe Maddon: He eventually winds up with the Cubs.

An unconfirmed rumour at exec levels of baseball has Joe Maddon going to the Cubs.
Hopefully you are renting Capt Happy
mlbtr says Joe Madden has opted out of his contract with the Rays. Hmmmm....
"The Cubs feel like Russell played close to a full season after 10 extra games in Arizona, where he hit .190 in 42 at-bats and got some time at second base."
78 games (counting AFL)...yeah, that's a full season.
hope he really is healthy.
Russell done with AFL after today.
