Joe Maddon Profile
Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times is reporting that the Tampa Bay Rays and manager Joe Maddon have agreed to terms on a 3-year contract extension. The deal is expected to be officially announced tomorrow.
Maddon's current contract expires after the 2012 season and the franchise had made it a priority this off-season to come to terms on an extension before spring training, although neither side had put any sort of deadline on the negotiations.
The six-year skipper of the Rays has led the team to the post-season three out of the last four years and is 495-477 at the helm.
