Greg Maddux named Special Assistant to GM...Road Trip!Greg Maddux has been hired by the Rangers to be a Special Assistant to the General Manager.  He held a similar role with the Cubs over the last two seasons.

More Maddux is a good thing when it comes to pitching.  He’ll be working with the minor league and major league staffs during spring training and then focus on the minor league staffs/prospects during the season; travel required.

The Rangers also recently announced that they will play two spring training games against the Cubs in March in Las Vegas, hometown of both Mike and Greg.  Sounds like a Road Trip opportunity…to support this blog of course.

Thoughts on the Maddux hire?  Anyone think there is a tie to Mike staying put and withdrawing from recent managerial openings?  Anyone want to go to Vegas in March?
