Joe Maddon dreaming of beating Cubs in World Series

Joe Maddon Angels

Joe Maddon wishes his former team well but has a dream that involves beating them.

Maddon was introduced by the Los Angeles Angels during a press conference in Anaheim on Thursday. The new team manager spoke about his time with the Cubs and said he has fond feelings for his former franchise. He also shared that his “pipe dream” is to play the Cubs in the World Series and beat them.

Maddon spent the past five seasons as the Cubs’ manager before they let his contract expire after failing to make the playoffs this season. He had a .581 winning percentage with the Cubs, took them to the NLCS three times, and finally broke the curse by winning the World Series in 2016.

The 65-year-old spent 31 years in the Angels’ organization as a player and a coach at multiple levels of the team’s system. He was the bench coach when the Angels won the World Series in 2002.
