Maddux is Welcome Back

It's all up to him. If Greg Maddux chooses to stick around Colletti is open to him wearing Blue.
If right-hander Greg Maddux doesn't follow through on his intention to retire, he'll be welcomed back to the Dodgers for the 2009 season, general manager Ned Colletti said on Wednesday as the second day of the General Managers Meetings wound down.

On Tuesday, Scott Boras, Maddux's agent, revealed that the pitcher had told him at the end of the postseason he was ready to call it quits.


"That's what Scott said and that's what Greg told us at the end," Colletti said. "But he hasn't [retired] yet and I told Scott that, 'You know what? We'd love to have him back. We're not going to be closing the door on Greg Maddux anytime soon.' I've known him for a long, long time. I respect who he is and admire what he's done. And I know what an impact he has on a club and a franchise.

"Let Greg take the winter and let him figure out what he's going to do. It's not like if we don't get something finished by today we're done. That's not what we told him."

I'd love to have him since he can only help our ever-maturing pitching staff.
