Cubs, Joe Maddon close to deal: report

The Cubs could have their third new manager in three years next season.

Several reports say a deal with former Rays manager Joe Maddon is imminent.

Maddon opted out of his contract in Tampa last week.

He led the Rays to the playoffs 4 times in 9-years.

That includes one trip to the World Series.

If the cubs hire Maddon, that means they'll have to release manager Rick Renteria who just finished his first season with the team.

Renteria has two years remaining on his contract.
