Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux released a statement today in regards to the Chicago Cubs managerial job, which went to Dale Sveum. Here is Maddux's statement:
I'd like to congratulate Dale Sveum and the Chicago Cubs on Dale’s appointment as manager. Dale is one of the best baseball people I know and will make a fine manager. His tireless work ethic, commitment, and communication skills give him the recipe to succeed.

I would like to thank the Cubs for the flattery and opportunity to be considered a managerial candidate. Possibly in the future a managerial position may come to fruition for me.

I am blessed to be with a quality organization, the Texas Rangers, and am looking forward to the 2012 season with high expectations. The DFW area is a great place to live and my family loves it here. Also, I would like to thank the fans whose support of the Rangers has made our jobs even more gratifying.

PS: To the fans I've met at the airport, grocery and home improvement stores, thanks for your support. It means a lot.
