(SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Cubs are in the process of finalizing an agreement to make Joe Maddon their next manager, according to CBSSports.com The report said that a deal between Maddon, who exercised an opt-out clause in his contract with the Tampa Bay Rays last week, and the Cubs is expected to be completed in the coming days and will make the two-time American League Manager of the Year among the highest-paid skippers in baseball. The Cubs have so far denied that an agreement is in place. Maddon unquestionably became the most coveted managerial candidate available once he parted ways with the Rays last Friday following a highly successful nine-year tenure. His exodus came shortly after general manager Andrew Friedman left the organization to become the president of baseball operations for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Despite annually operating with one of the lowest payrolls in the majors, the Rays were a consistent contender for much of Maddons reign. Lauded for his ability to work with young players and to maximize the available talent on hand, the charismatic manager guided Tampa to six consecutive winning seasons that began with an unexpected run to the World Series in 2008. The Rays, who had never won over 70 games in their first 10 seasons prior to that 2008 breakthrough, also reached the playoffs in 2010, 2011 and 2013. Maddon amassed a 754-705 overall record in Tampa Bay and guided the Rays to a pair of division titles in addition to the 2008 AL pennant. In Chicago, hell take over a long-suffering franchise that has endured five consecutive losing campaigns but did show moderate improvement in current manager Rick Renterias first season on the job. The Cubs finished with a 73-89 record in 2014 after winning 66 and 61 games the previous two years. According to the CBS report, the Cubs had informed Renteria earlier in the week of their pursuit of Maddon. The Cubs had been linked as a potential desired destination for Maddon due to their strong farm system as well as the organizations ability to spend on free agents, a luxury he never had under the low-budget Rays. Maddon is also believed to have a positive relationship with Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein, who reportedly nearly hired the 60-year-old to manage the Red Sox while still in charge of Bostons baseball operations back in 2004. Maddon, then a longtime bench coach for the Angels, ultimately lost out to Terry Francona for the job.

"What? You want me to talk about that?" the Anaheim Ducks captain asks chuckling. After some gentle prodding Getzlaf opens up. "Thats part of Perrys game. I mean, hes always going to play hard, play hard between the whistles and, you know, theres always a little extra stuff going on and its stuff hes been doing his whole career. Its part of his makeup and things that fuel him to be a better player on the ice and I thought he was unbelievable [in Game 3]." On the ice, Perry is in the middle of everything. Rarely will a shift go by without him getting engaged physically with someone. "He is what he is," said Getzlaf. "Hes not out there chirping at every guy that skates by or anything like that. Hes just a bit of a rat out there, I guess, if you want to call him [that]. He stirs the pot and he does the things that he does and that helps make him a better player." What makes Perrys pest persona on the ice intriguing is that it differs sharply with the seemingly reclusive life he leads away from the rink. "Hes very, very quiet off the ice," said Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau. "Hes actually shy around people. But on the ice hes one competitive man." "If you dont really know him off the ice hes pretty quiet, he really doesnt say too much," said Kings defenceman Drew Doughty, who lives around the corner from Perry in London, Ont. and was his Olympic teammate in February. "You kind of got to get to know him a bit more. Hes an awesome guy off the ice and I see him quite a bit in the summer, but on the ice hes just a pest out there. Hes a really good player and he likes to get under the other teams skin and when you put those two things together it kind of frustrates you." Perry was third on the Ducks with 65 penalty minutes in the regular season. He is fourth on the team in penalty minutes during the post-season with 15. And the Kings are wary of being goaded into taking retaliation penalties. "If he starts [agitating] after the whistle then Im probably going to ignore it, but if its throughout the game, hes going to try and hit me or whatever, Im going to try and hit him for sure," said Doughty. "You got to play physical on a guy like that. The only way you can beat him is physically. You got to play him hard and try and get under his skin too, because he gets frustrated at times." What makes Perry somewhat different is that hes a creative pest. His prank on Jeff Carter in Game 1 – squirting water in his Olympic teammattes unattended glove during a commercial break – went viral.dddddddddddd Someone even showed Boudreau the video on YouTube. It reminded the Ducks bench boss of when Perry sprayed water at Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy at the end of the first game of the regular season when the two coaches engaged in a shouting match. Perry also made it on to plenty of highlight reels earlier in the season. During a November overtime game in Carolina, the 28-year-old broke his stick and grabbed one right out of Alex Semins hands while skating back to the Ducks bench. Semin was hanging over the boards waiting to come on as part of a line change. "I dont know if hes trying to get under peoples skin or if hes just playing like hes been playing since he was six years old," said Boudreau. "I dont think hes a guy like [Stars forwards] Antoine Roussel or [Ryan] Garbutt, who purposely do things to tick the other person off. I think Corey just plays as Corey and if it ticks people off then thats an added bonus." Boudreau believes Perry needs to create chaos in order to be the effective 43-goal scorer he is. "The more youre on him and the more you hound him the more competitive he gets just like when I watch Doughty," Boudreau explains. "The more you hit him the better he gets." "If Im not doing different things," Perry said, "Im not going to be myself on the ice." But how does Perry explain the double life he leads? How is he able to morph from unassuming off the ice into an annoyance on it? "Theres a switch where, when I get to the rink, it flips on," the former Hart Trophy winner said quietly. "I can turn it off when I leave." NOTES: Perry and Getzlaf held a one-on-one meeting after the Game 2 loss to discuss why they werent as effective. "Luckily enough we dont have to have them that often," said Getzlaf. "Its not that often where both of us dont have a good game. Sometimes its one or the other and we can kind of pick each other up a bit. There were just some things we needed to do better. Its not like we were playing horrible or anything like that. It was just we needed to be better than we were and thats when you have those talks." The two responded with a strong effort in Game 3 as the Ducks got back in the series. Perry scored the opening goal of the game on the power play ... "We just got to take him out of this series," said Doughty of Perry. "Hes one of the key guys on their team and we havent done a good enough job against him yet so tonight [in Game 4] we got to pay special attention to that and take him out of the game."
