Merlot Joe Maddon Toasts Greg Schiano

September 11th, 2012

The best Tampa Bay major sports coach, Rays manager Merlot Joe Maddon, who blends wine, funky glasses, spreadsheet graffiti and baseball wizardry like no other, is a fan of Twitter, just like Gerald McCoy.

On Monday Maddon had but one Twitter message. And it was to laud Bucs coach Greg Schiano for a job well done as the Bucs smothered the stinking Panthers.

@RaysJoeMaddon: Congrats to Coach Schiano on a great debut. Let’s both celebrate one over New York next Sunday.

For those who are not baseball fans or followers of the Rays, both the Bucs and the Rays will take to Gotham this weekend. The Rays have a crucial series in The Bronx against the Yankees that could well determine if the Rays are playoff-bound or not.

At the same time, Schiano will be leading the Bucs in the New Jersey Swamplands to face the defending Super Bowl champion Giants.

And Joe will be there.

    I agree with Maddon. Time to move from basking in the glow of last Sunday and move forward to focusing on the G-men. That team is a big step upwards in talent from the Kitties. I guarantee you 16 points will NOT be enough to win that game.

    Still can’t stop laughing about old school Davey Johnson referring to him as a “weird wuss.” Granted….I’m not a Rays fan.
