Player-Coach Role For Maddux?

Interesting note from Mel Antonen and Bob Nightengale at USA Today, found via Shysterball:

The San Diego Padres have talked to Greg Maddux about of becoming a player-coach in the organization, general manager Kevin Towers said Thursday.  Yet Towers anticipates that Maddux might retire instead.

Maddux seems to already serve that type of role, making his 32 starts while tutoring young pitchers.  Might as well make it official if he sticks around in 2009.  The Padres might have a hard time fitting Maddux in the budget, but the Dodgers or Giants could be alternatives if the Professor wants to make a run at fifth all-time in wins

He'll have to get past Pud Galvin.  The game hasn't changed much since Pud's day.  Did you know he pitched 656.3 innings in 75 starts as a 26 year-old in 1883?
