What makes Mad Dog the coolest guy ever?

madduxI’m 90 percent sure his Twitter profile pic is a joke. That there is even 10 percent doubt makes Greg Maddux even more endearing.

No move — except signing J. Upton, Jay Hey, Medlen and Freeman to reasonable contract extensions –would make me happier than naming Mad Dog manager. I have no idea if he hasany interest, but I bet he hasn’t been asked.

Yet Terry Collins is on his third gig.

(Maddux’s WHIP in 1995? 0.811. That has nothing to do with him being a great manager — I just like remembering he was a Brave.)

  1. Mad Dog works for the Rangers now, but apparently that’s only because his brother is the pitching coach. If Nolan Ryan leaves the Rangers, which I imagine he will rather than stick around to be the team mascot, then at season’s end, Jon Daniels will get rid of all the Ryan loyalists in the organization, which include manager Ron Washington and Mike Maddox. And then we’d be able to offer Mad Dog an appropriate position, something we should have done a while back.
