08:56 AM ET 10.26 | Two years ago, Texas Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux flirted with the idea of becoming a manager, drawing serious interest from the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox. Ultimately, he decided to stay with the Rangers and withdrew his name from the process so he could remain close to his two daughters who were in school in Texas. But this time around, Maddux is ready to take the next step, and he has his eyes set on the Detroit Tigers' managerial opening, a position he said has turned into one of the marquee jobs in recent years. "I'd absolutely be interested," Maddux told MLive.com late Thursday. "I'd be flattered."

It's going to be tough replacing Leyland, The Cards did a great job with La Russa's replacement, who knows Maddox might be someone they should strongly consider!
