Creeping Inexorably Toward A Worthwhile Sub-Heading.

The End is Near
The Atlanta-Journal Constitution is reporting tonight that Greg Maddux will return to Chicago. According to the article, an official announcement has yet to be made, but is expected sometime tomorrow. No other details are available, and I haven't seen it on the wire services, but since the AJC is a disinterested party, I'm inclined to buy the story.
If this turns out to be true it will be, if not a great day for the Chicago Cubs, certainly a cathartic one for their fans. More on this when it's official. Until then, keep your fingers crossed, not because we need him, but because it'll be fun to have him.
UPDATE: ESPN has picked the story up, adding a little more credibility. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
