Maybe, but I do not not think so. Maddux has proven to be very ordinary (in fact he outright blows at times) and will still have to pitch half the time away from Dodger Stadium (assuming he goes back to the Dodgers). Without Dodger Stadium he will be borderline fantasy gasoline imo. He has not been all that good for a few years now and is not getting any younger either.
I just do not see much better than a 4.2 ERA in the best case, which is nothing to be concerned with in most 10 or 12 team mixed leagues, esp since he is not a K pitcher at this point. I just do not think he has a whole lot left. Great pitcher who had a great career. He can certainly hook on somewhere and still contribute, but honestly he should retire at this point and wait for the HOF to call. The man has absolutely nothing left to prove.
