Maddon for the 2019 season http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-don-mattingly-jersey , ending speculation that they would fire him after losing to the Colorado Rockies in the NL Wild Card Game.Bob Nightengale of USA Today broke the news.Joe Maddon will remain as #Cubs manager through 2019, but there will be no extension. The Cubs will make a determination on his future after 2019 when his 5-year, $28 million contract expires.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) October 3, 2018It wouldn't have made much sense for Chicago to fire a manager that led them to a World Series championship in 2016, ending a 108-year drought. Maddon and the Cubs have won 90-plus games in four straight years now, and reached the NLCS in 2015, 2016 and 2017.The Cubs lost a NL Central tiebreaker game to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday Aroldis Chapman Jersey , which forced them to play the Rockies in the NL Wild Card game. Chicago lost a nail-biter 2-1 in 13 innings, and their excellent showing in 2018 went down the drain after a pair of gut-wrenching losses.advertisingBut in big markets like Chicago, it's championship or bust when it comes to the postseason. The Cubs were defeated in five games by the Los Angeles Dodgers in last year's NLCS, then they had this late-season unraveling to miss out on the Division Series. Credit: Jerry Lai-USA TODAY SportsMaddon left the Tampa Bay Rays to join the Cubs in 2015, and they've won no fewer than 92 games in his first four years at the helm. One of the game's top leaders and in-game strategists, Maddon has more than deserved the chance to manage the Cubs for a fifth season.The Cubs lost Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta in free agency and replaced him with Yu Darvish, who made just eight starts and missed most of the season due to an elbow injury. Despite losing their top ace Didi Gregorius Jersey , Maddon and the Cubs were oh-so-close to a third consecutive NL Central title.advertisingMaddon is safe for at least another year, but the Cubs may decide to change things up if they don't go far into the postseason in 2019. CHICAGO (AP) — Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price visited a hand specialist on Thursday, and manager Alex Cora said he isn’t sure when the left-hander will make his next start.Price was hit on his left wrist by a line drive in the third inning of Wednesday night’s 14-6 win against Miami at Fenway Park. Cora said Price is OK, but he doesn’t know if he’ll take his turn in the rotation next week in Atlanta.“We’ll see how he feels the next few days and then we’ll go from there,” Cora said.Price, who turned 33 on Sunday, stayed behind in Boston to see the doctor while the rest of the team hit the road for the opener of a four-game series against the White Sox. But Cora said Price was on his way to Chicago.“He texted me last night and was in good spirits http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-greg-bird-jersey ,” Cora said.Price is 14-6 with a 3.60 ERA in his first 26 starts for the AL East-leading Red Sox.Cora said he isn’t sure who will pitch against the Braves if Price is unavailable. He mentioned Hector Velazquez as a possibility, or the Red Sox could opt for one of their promotions when major league rosters expand on Saturday.Boston also is missing ace lefty Chris Sale, who is on the disabled list with mild shoulder inflammation. Sale played catch Thursday for the fourth straight day.“We have a plan,” Cora said. “It all started already with playing catch and like I’ve been telling everybody back home, we’ll use him when he’s ready, but we do believe he’s going to be stretched out. When he has to pitch, if this happens Dellin Betances Jersey , he’s going to be ready to go full blast.”Cora also said Mitch Moreland is feeling better after the All-Star first baseman missed Wednesday’s victory because of a bruised left knee. Moreland was out of the lineup against Chicago, but was available off the bench.
