Joe Maddon would ‘love’ more night games at Wrigley

Cubs manager Joe Maddon is ready for a change of scenery while looking out of the dugout at Wrigley Field.

Clint Dempsey Jersey I’d love more night games (at Wrigley). That’s why they put up lights, Maddon said, via the Chicago Tribune.

City regulations allow the Cubs just 43 night games, but they want to get up to the league average of 54. Maddon would like that too because it would afford his team more rest.

I usually shave it once a year or so, Holland told The Denver Post, during turns playing Golden Tee in the clubhouse at Progressive Field. The first couple days, it’s kind of different.

He maintained that the new look wasn’t a result of Yan Gomes’ walk-off homer Tuesday on the heels of allowing the Phillies two runs in their come-from-behind win Sunday in Denver.

They all stink when you lose, Holland said, especially when it’s your fault.

Rockies manager Bud Black isn’t worried and told The Post that he certainly won’t offer Holland any advice about focus.

He’s the guy who needs that the least. He’s as mentally tough as they come, Black said. We talked about some of his throwing mechanics. We saw something on video. But on the mental side? No way.

Black gave Holland the day off Wednesday after three appearances in four days — but only out of routine. And this time the Rockies rallied on the Indians, splitting a two-game set with the AL Central leaders and moving back ahead of the Diamondbacks for the lead in the NL wild-card race.
