GREG MADDUX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kyle Hendricks Fools Phils, Fuels Greg Maddux Comps

You might not like all the Maddux comps, but they’re difficult to avoid when Kyle Hendricks goes out and almost throws one. A Maddux, that is. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with that particular statistical anomaly, it’s when a pitcher logs a complete-game shutout while throwing fewer than 100 pitches. The Cubs’ fifth starter was only four throws and a dropped third...

Bear or Bull: Will Zack Continue His Ratio Attack?

It wasn't supposed to be this way. The ace who just last year produced the lowest ERA (1.66) in a single season among qualified starting pitchers since Greg Maddux in 1995 and the lowest WHIP (0.84) since Pedro Martinez in 2000 wasn't supposed to struggle like this. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan for Zack Greinke since signing a six-year, $208 million contract...

Greg Maddux: Great pitcher, disgusting locker room presence

Greg Maddux has an almost impeccable reputation amongst fans and media, but some of his former teammates might not share in the same effervescent praise. It turns out the Hall of Fame pitcher was a devious, if not outright disgusting, clubhouse prankster. Tom Glavine just told us Greg Maddux used to take shirts out of teammates lockers, wipe his rear end with them, & put back...

Greg Maddux asked for umpire’s advice on pitch and it worked

By Steve DelVecchio We all know respected Major League pitchers who have been around the game for years are more apt to get the benefit of the doubt with borderline calls. But what about umpires telling pitchers what pitch to throw? Maybe that’s just a Greg Maddux thing. In his book “Leo Mazzone’s Tales From the Braves Mound,” former Atlanta Braves pitching coach Leo Mazzone...

Greg Maddux did gross shower prank on rookies

Greg Maddux: World class pitcher. Soon-to-be-enshrined player in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Legendary prankster. Shower urinator. The last two notable aspects of Maddux’s public persona go hand-in-hand — and hand in … never mind — as the pantheon of great Greg Maddux stories has received a rather unsanitary addition related to the pitcher’s propensity […] The post Greg...

Chicago Cubs: It’s time to retire Andre Dawson’s number

It’s been four years since the Baseball Writers Association of America elected former Chicago Cub Andre Dawson to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Yet the Cubs have not yet honored The Hawk by retiring his #8.  According to an ESPNChicago.com article from Jan. 10, 2010, the team would retire his number if he were to go into the Hall of Fame wearing a Cubs hat instead of a Montreal...

Players such as Greg Maddux should be on every voter's ballot

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Incredibly, 16 voters left Greg Maddux off their Hall of Fame ballot. I guess I shouldn't be totally surprised. George Brett wasn't a unanimous choice. Neither was Nolan Ryan, nor a host of other sure-thing Hall of Famers. Players such as Maddux, Brett and Ryan absolutely scream out Hall of Fame induction. That's why I voted for them the first time. I just don...
