Chicago Cubs fire Renteria; Maddon on deck?

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have fired manager Rick Renteria after one season to pursue former Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon.

Team President Theo Epstein said Friday that Renteria deserved to come back next season as the Cubs continue their rebuilding effort. But Maddon opted out of his contract with the Rays and Epstein says that changed things for the Cubs.

Chicago decided to pursue a deal with Maddon. Epstein says Maddon may be "as well suited as anyone in the industry to manage the challenges that lie ahead" for the Cubs.
