And he showed that commitment in agreeing to a three-year contract extension, announced this morning at Tropicana Field, that would keep him in the Rays dugout through 2015.

For the three years, Maddon will be paid about $6-million, considerably less than he likely could have gotten had he become a free agent when
his current deal would have  expired at the end of this season.
