- He never has to room with one of those young "whippersnappers" in spring training or on the road.

- When he comes to bat they will not play any of that "rock & roll crap!"

- The temperature in the clubhouse will be turned up because it's "too darn cold" in there.

- The team will send a driver to pick him up for every game at his "assisted living" complex.

- All his prescriptions will be paid for and the trainer will keep them in a little plastic container with the days of the week written on it so he remembers to take his pills.

- He gets to take a break during spring training at 12:00 to watch Matlock.


LOL. :-D
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

$8 million a year....I like the move....not only is he still a quality pitcher...but the ability to pass his knowledge on to Wood, Prior and Zambrano...that in itself could be worth it..... ;-D


My sentiments exactly! ;-D

That Boras is shark!!!

Its not i dont think Maddux still has some quality years in him but im no sure id pay 8 mill a year for him although is not far fetched. But 3 years? All of them guaranteed? Not a an option or an out clause like for I-Rod? Thats a lot of possitive thinking. The thing that gets me dazzled is Wood is a free agent next year. So im thinking this a preventive move by the Cubs. They might be thinking there´s no way they get him.
Maybe he could go to the Braves!!! :-b

The third year is not guaranteed, Maddux has to meet certain performance incentives for the third year to be picked up. Knowing that it does not looked like he was overpayed.
