This is a Bold Statement
- New Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters at his introductory press conference Monday at The Cubby Bear that he won’t shy away from talking about the playoffs and the World Series.
Even with a team that hasn’t won a championship since 1908.
“I’m gonna be talking playoffs next year,” Maddon said. “I’ll tell you that right now. I can’t go to spring training and say anything else. You have to set your goals high, because if you don’t set them high enough you might hit your mark, and that’s not a good thing. We’re gonna talk World Series this year, and I’m gonna believe it. It’s in our future.”
Aim big we suppose. We'll believe it when we see the owners spend some actual money on talent.
