Maddon Making Lineup in Advanced

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is doing his lineups three days at a time, giving his players an advance look at what to expect for the upcoming series. It’s a marked departure from the days of managers posting the starting nine in the clubhouse before the game, or even the modern practice of nightly text messages. Maddon likes how it’s going so far. Chicago is 13-6 since beginning the season with six losses in seven games.
