#Cubs Maddon ready for break
During the All-Star break, Cubs manager Joe Maddon planned on heading to the same Florida hotel where he spent the mid-season time off in 2008. That year, the Rays reached the World Series.
“I’m going to hole up in a particular hotel that I holed up in 2008,” he said. “I’m using the same methods.”
First, though, he will go to Tampa Bay to check out wife Jaye’s new boxing and fitness center and also spend time at his restaurant, Ava.
“I just like to do nothing,” Maddon said of the break. “I’m good at doing nothing when I get that opportunity.”
