Cubs fire Renteria, go after Joe Maddon as manager

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs fired Rick Renteria on Friday to pursue former Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon.

In an extraordinary statement, team President Theo Epstein said Renteria deserved to come back next season as the Cubs continue their rebuilding effort but Maddon's unexpected decision to opt out of his contract with the Rays changed the equation.

In short, Maddon was too good to pass up.
