Just got word that Joe Madden will opt out of his contract for 2015.   This really sucks- Say goodbye to the winning years of the Rays

He will be greatly missed but on the bright side we may finally get rid of Shelton :)

We said goodbye to winning this season, while Joe sat around sipping tea in the dugout. My guess is they hand the job to Dave Martinez, with he and Silvermann running the show, it should be largely business as usual. Perhaps Joe takes Shelton with him nad perhaps Martinez would have a fresher approach.

I think it will be Martinez as well. All the current Rays coaches are under contract through 2015. Sounds like we are going on the cheap again, so no way they pay Maddon's coaches NOT to coach, as well as a new manager who will want to bring in all of his own guys as coaches as well.

 

The odd thing to me is that new GM Silverman is the one who told Maddon or his agent that he had an opt-out clause in his contract. Maddon claims he didn't even know that. So it sounded like negotiations to keep him so he wouldn't be a lame duck manager in '15 were not going well, so this saves some face for the front office.

 

I just hope this doesn't signify another dark period in Rays history. Let's pray that Lightning owner Jeff Vinik is purchasing all this land around the Amalie Arena in order to move the Rays over from St Pete to a new ballpark that will begin construction in 2015.

So we are expected to believe that the "genius" didn't know about something as important as an opt out clause? Not buying it, unless as I have always suspected he is near as smart as we have been told.

If it gets rid of Derek Shelton, it will be worth losing him. But if the Rays keep Shelton, then the Rays will not have the bats to do anything. Wil Myers is the future of this franchise but if the Rays keep the non hitting batting coach, they will suffer unless Myers turns into a James Loney and figures out to hit all by himself. It would be nice to have a hitting coach that had to keep his job by results.

I'm not terribly upset by maddon leaving. To me he was always maddoning, tinkering with what works, just to play his sabermetric hunch. Joe had some good teams here, teams he could have won with. I think a good manager without all the tinkering can bring this club back, save the injuries. I also jump on the take shelton with you.

Have you heard the rumor of Maddon to the Cubs, good young up and coming team(needs pitching) money to spend, can you say James Sheilds.

We shall see.

Yep. 17-6 Cubs SUCK.

Rays 11-13 MUCH BETTER without the only coach to ever actually succeed.

I don't give enough fucks to give a fuck

Just like the Bucs under Dungy, Maddon doesn't deserve all the credit for turning the fortunes of the team around.

And now like Dungy, Maddon goes to another team and has success. Afeared the Rays will flounder for a while now. But I never thought they'd even have the run they had, so there is that.
