Yeah, we are all thinking about it. Joe Maddon is one of the premier managers in the game and it sounds like a divorce from the Chicago Cubs is imminent. Maddon will have his choice of jobs so the question may be more about Maddon’s interest in Seattle than the other way around.
As a field manager, Maddon is creative as is Dipoto in the front office. Maddon is aggressive just like Dipoto. It seems like Maddon and Dipoto would get along pretty well, but that is all speculation at this point.
Maddon has a quirky personality and is known for his crazy clubhouse antics and fiery ejections, all of which has led to massive success as an MLB manager. He owns an 1167-990 record and helped turn the Rays from perennial laughing stock to contenders before being the manager who helped end the longest drought in sports.
The resume is long and speaks for itself. Maddon is a good manager and has experience taking on a young team and molding them into championship quality teams. But the probability of this happening is less than that of Servais not being in the dugout for 2020. But hey, nobody is going to stop you from dreaming.
