Greg Maddux Enjoys Retirement

ESPN reports that Greg Maddux will be joining the Rangers as a part-time special assistant.

From the article:

“I appreciate the Cubs and how they treated me,” Maddux said. “Now I’ll hopefully help the Rangers out. I’m really not ready to take anything full time anyway because retirement is too good. Whoever said they don’t like retirement probably isn’t doing it right.”

Or maybe they just didn’t earn $153,845,000 during their career, and get to retire before they’re 45. Good grief. If you can’t enjoy retirement with a hundred and fifty million dollars, then, sure, you’re probably not doing it right.
