Joe Maddon shares his one regret from time with Cubs
Joe Maddon won a World Series with the Chicago Cubs, but the former manager endured a rocky end to his tenure that left some feeling sour.
Many felt that Maddon’s teams in 2018 and 2019 underperformed relative to the talent they had. Maddon, however, didn’t voice any regrets about his time in Chicago except for one — and it relates to his restaurant.
Joe Maddon was asked if he would have done anything differently looking back on his time in Chicago. “I would put Maddon’s Post downtown. That’s my biggest regret, that we chose to put it where we did. I think that restaurant in the proper setting would have killed it.”

Maddon’s restaurant, Maddon’s Post, opened in Wrigleyville and lasted just seven months. It ultimately closed when Maddon left the Cubs.
Maddon isn’t really one to look back critically. Some players have indicated there are things they want done differently now that he’s gone, but don’t expect the new Los Angeles Angels manager to harp on those.
