Eddie Vedder Is Kind Of Helping Manage The Cubs


670 The Score and CBS Sports are reporting that Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was recently sending Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder daily Cubs lineups while he was on tour in Europe.

Joe Maddon is known for his eccentricities as a manager. Who could forget the time that he brought penguins in to relax in the Rays’ clubhouse? With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a shock that he’s sending Pearl Jam front-man Eddie Vedder the Cubs’ daily lineup while Pearl Jam tours in Europe. And yet, it’s still enough to make you do a double-take.

You can’t deny Maddon and Vedder’s history together. Here’s a phenomenal video of the Cubs’ manager playing the tambourine on-stage alongside Vedder and Cubs executive Theo Epstein while Pearl Jam plays “Keep on Rocking the Free World” at The Metro in Chicago in 2016.

670 The Score tweeted, “Joe Maddon has been sending his daily #Cubs lineup to Eddie Vedder while Pearl Jam is on tour in Europe.”

Can Vedder help the Cubs go all the way again with his managerial advice to Maddon? We’ll have to wait and see!
