I am Joe Maddon

Excerpts around the Web on Joe Maddon:

BTF Entry circa 2003

By the early 90s, he was instrumental in developing their young minor league talent, many of whom you've heard of: Tim Salmon, Jim Edmonds, Garret Anderson.


Although he likes statistics, Maddon said his management style
   wouldn't be driven by them.

   "I love on-base percentage and I love the walk, I think they're great.
   But to just eschew the bunt or the sacrifice in a certain situation
   because some statistical information indicates otherwise, I don't
   believe in that.''
