Cubs' Maddon studying 'Managing Millennials for Dummies'

LAS VEGAS (AP) Joe Maddon will be managing by the book next year, and the book is "Managing Millennials for Dummies."

The Chicago Cubs manager will head to spring training just after his 65th birthday, a generation or two removed from his players and entering the final season of his contract.

"You always think this `for dummies' thing is really rudimentary written - it's really well written and it's really well researched," he said Tuesday at the winter meetings. "I'm learning about traditionalists, baby boomers, the Xers and then millennials. I'm really starting to understand this a little bit better."
