#Cubs Maddon’s book report
While prepping for the postseason, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that he downloaded “The Haj,” “Exodus,” and “Armageddon: A Novel of Berlin” by author Leon Uris for some light reading. Maddon had read the books before, and wanted to re-read them. He’s upset at himself for not reading more.
“I really want to be that guy again.” he said. “I used to be so well read and now I stink.”
Maddon likes to read before he goes to sleep.
“It’s gymnastics for your brain,” he said.
