    Joe Maddon Opts Out

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sport...ticle21287655/

    Joe Maddon has opted out. I think we should go after him and give Gibby the boot. Discuss.

    Fan 590 said the Jays have already come out and said no (as to not get the fans hopes up and thats a good move). Maddon is also demanding 5/25 so the Jays don't have money to pay for a manager with all of their holes. Though Maddon would attract some quality free agents... with TB there were budget problems, but with a big cosmopolitan city like Toronto there should be no probl.... actually never mind he isn't coming here...

    You're a Jays fan. Dreaming is prohibited.

    Yes definitely. "Woth" all our holes, we definitely need to throw more "monkey" at a manager.

    Ha, I'm on my phone and it's Friday night, do the math. How much do you charge for sports forum grammar lessons on a Friday night? Must be a premium.

    Rumor is he wants 5 years/25 million. Zero chance a team who passed the hat around a year ago to pay a player would ever offer that to a manager.

    Nah, not enough "monkey" in the world for me to waste my time.

    The Jays could offer him $40M, but at the end of the day Maddon has to actually want to come here. And I can't think of one good reason, given how lousy the team has been. He's seen the Jays up close enough times to have no interest in coming here.

    He'll either go out west for his family, or to an up and coming team like the Cubs.

    This sums up every sports interview, ever.

    He's going to coach Dodgers. Connect the dots.

    Sure, Mr. sports forum grammar teacher, your mom must be really proud of you. I will try harder next time, especially for you. That'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

    You should've used a period after 'teacher'.

    But all we heard all trade deadline, and after, is how close the Jays were to making the playoffs, and just needed a few additions to make that happen. Another reliever...a serviceable 2B. Wouldn't Maddon want to be part of a team that's so close to the post-season?

    Or is it that this team really isn't that close at all and getting mad at not adding a body or two at the deadline is kinda foolish?
