Javy Baez discusses Cubs replacing Joe Maddon

It's a new era for Chicago Cubs baseball as Grandpa Rossy is the new manager for 2020.
“Joe [Maddon] was great for us," Baez said via The Athletic's Patrick Mooney. "He brought the World Series to us. You got to see the business side. I don’t know what happened. But obviously Joe was great for me, for the organization, for the city, for everybody. We thank him a lot."
During his time with the Cubs, Maddon helped break the 108-year title curse on the North Side including having the highest winning percentage (.581) by a manager since Frank Chase and accomplished a team-record 19 playoff victories.
It will be a tough act to follow but Ross hopefully has what it takes to be successful on the North Side for years to come.
