The Rays really hit a home run with this deal, which was also a no-brainer.

    I remember even before the Rays’ recent success, I admired Maddon for his deviation from the norm. I could tell then that his unconventional ways would make him an integral piece of the Rays organization. True, I didn’t know how long he was going to stay there if they kept losing, but I knew he would be loved by fans regardless.
