Father knows best
When manager Joe Maddon woke up Friday morning, he was greeted by a flooded downstairs courtesy of an overflowing dishwasher. Maddon's biggest challenge wasn't cleaning up the mess — "mop, mop mop," he said — but figuring out how to shut off the still-running water. "I'm looking under the sink. I'm like, 'What do I do now?' said Maddon, who instantly thought of his late father, a plumber, watching the scene. "He's shaking his head: 'You idiot, just come watch me once when you were a kid.' "
