This is so rad. Hell let him manage!
Kevin Towers talked to Greg Maddux before he was traded to the Dodgers about possibly becoming a player/coach. Towers suspects Maddux might choose to retire instead.
"He would be outstanding in that role," Towers said, "but I don't see it happening. We never made an (official) offer but just asked if he'd have interest in something like that."
...and what did he say when you asked him? They missed the most important part of the story.
