Joe Maddon Leaves Rays


Michael

Recommended Posts

Been a few days, just some thoughts on the matter...

 

Surprising that he left so soon after claiming he was sticking around despite Freidmans departure. Something must have gone down. Maddon doesn't seem like the kind of guy to be lying when he said he wasn't leaving. Something had to change his mind.

 

Id be pretty upset if I'm a Rays fan. That franchise is pretty impressive at overcoming hurdles the last several years but the road ahead looks rockier than normal. Is it uphill from here or are their more downturns coming? Definitely a team worth keeping an eye on.

He didn't know about the clause, the Rays told him of it- they negotiated- and instead of being a lame duck he took off.

 

Some argue this is exactly what the Rays wanted. He left and looks bad, not them.

 

I think Dave Martinez get the job and it was only a matter of time.

Tampa Bay deserves their team even less than Miami.

 

Can they move already?

Success starts at the top. The Rays might be fucked or they could be fine. But they had a proven staff... And now they don't.

 

 

 

Proven staff? Two equals not having one?

Friedman was grooming his replacement for a while, and Maddon's staff WILL stay the same except for him.

 

I imagine Dave Martinez taking over, as he's been mentioned a lot for other jobs in the past.

 

I think everything will stay the same.

Except that Dave Martinez is no Joe Maddon and I forget whom is no Andrew Friedman.

 

Other than that, ya, they will be just fine.

 

I mean even playing in one of the two worst stadiums in MLB, they should still be able to spend money (they dont), considering that national revenues DOUBLED last year and all and revenues just go up yearly.

Exactly. And didn't we pick off a few of their scouts last year as well? Things aren't heading in the right direction in Tampa…
