Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
Why don't the Cubs make a push to get Joe Maddon from the Rays? I think he is, by far, the best manager in baseball and is personally worth 10 to 20 wins a year. He works mostly with young players in Tampa Bay, which obviously will be our core for the next few years. He also gets the best out of the veterans that come to his team. And just imagine what he could do working for an organization that actually has some money to spend. The only question would be compensation. I don't think giving up either Starlin Castro or Jeff Samardzija would be too much. What do you think? -- Roger S. Grimm, East St. Louis, Ill.
