With Maddon vs. Hurdle Rematch Looming, Which MLB Skipper Would Prevail in Royal Rumble?

The last time the Cubs and Pirates faced off, fireworks weren’t the only things exploding. Tired of their division rivals’ constant pitches up and in to his hitters, a livid Joe Maddon came onto the field and confronted Pirates manager Clint Hurdle.

Maddon was held back by the human roadblock that is Joe West, who got a little help from a smiling Kris Bryant, but you have to admit it’d be kind of fun to see the two skippers actually throw down. Both are on the older side and not in the kind of shape they once were, but Maddon’s impressive spin move to try and escape Cowboy Joe makes me think he would emerge as the winner.
