Maddon has said that immigrants were 'saving' his home town and pissed off that town in the process. More recently he said 'it doesn't make any sense' to own an automatic rifle.
I don't believe or expect Maddon to be a paragon of progressive politics, but the extrapolation that some folks have done to one of his comments is silly.
More to the point, I think Joe Maddon is a great manager. I am also getting tired of his 'always on' method of being a great manager since the media eats this stuff up and reports it at every turn.
Good points. I missed those comments he made about immigrants in his home town.
What do you mean when you say 'always on' method of being a great manager? The media does love to quote him and talk about him because he's so different from most managers/coaches.
I also agree he is a great manager.
