LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joe Maddon will be managing by the book next year Nathan Eovaldi Jersey , and the book is “Managing Millennials for Dummies.”The Chicago Cubs manager will head to spring training just after his 65th birthday, a generation or two removed from his players and entering the final season of his contract.“You always think this ‘for dummies’ thing is really rudimentary written — it’s really well written and it’s really well researched,” he said Tuesday at the winter meetings. “I’m learning about traditionalists, baby boomers, the Xers and then millennials. I’m really starting to understand this a little bit better.”Maddon has spent more than four decades as a baseball manager, coach and scout. After brief managing stints with the California Angels in 1996 and ’99, he led the Tampa Bay Rays from 2006-14 and then the Cubs since 2015. In his second season, he helped Chicago to its first World Series title since 19008.“Whether anybody here agrees or disagrees with the generation and how they process things doesn’t matter, because that’s the way it is,” he said. “And if that’s the way it is, just like my dad , that generation thought we were a bunch of babies, the boomers. The traditionalists thought they’re all soft. And then you think the Xers are soft. The Xers think the millennials are soft. It doesn’t matter. You have to figure out how to communicate and extract the best out of this group and make sure that you’re always on the same page.”In addition to the “Managing Millennials” book by Hannah L. Ubl, Lisa X. Walden and Debra Arbit, Maddon has been studying “Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy,” written by Siva Vaidhyanathan.“You have to make your adjustments. And that’s what I’m working on right now is to understand better how I could better serve these guys,” Maddon said.Maddon claimed he doesn’t mind Cubs president Theo Epstein has not given him a new deal.“Theo and I have had some really good conversations. I totally understand where he’s coming from. I am not offended,” Maddon said. “If you have a lot of self-confidence, things like that should do not bother you — and I do. I’m going to do my job like you’ve always seen me do my job. I might alter it a little bit regarding getting out on the field a little bit more often. What we’ve done over the last four years I feel pretty good about, feel strongly about. Let’s just win the World Series and see how that all plays out.”Maddon hopes to remain as Cubs manager beyond 2019.“The concept that Theo and I have any kind of a disengagement or a lack of philosophical sameness is untrue,” he said. “We have great conversations. And we’re definitely almost a 100 percent on the same page all the time.” SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Leave it to Antonio Senzatela to end Colorado’s longest scoring drought this season with his first hit in nearly five months.The right-hander pitched a pretty good game, too.Senzatela pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and also hit a two-run single as the Rockies topped the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Sunday and moved back into first place in the NL West.Colorado jumped a half-game in front of the Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Andriese Jersey , who lost 5-0 at St. Louis on Sunday night.“I knew they were big moments but I just really tried to stay in the moment and execute my pitches and then roll with it,” Senzatela said. “That at-bat I just tried to put the ball in play and I did. I got a good result and I helped the team to win.”The Rockies, blanked the previous two days, avoided a three-game sweep.Colorado also improved to 41-34 on the road this season, tying the franchise record for wins away from Coors Field set in 2009 and matched in 2017.Ian Desmond added two hits and DJ LeMahieu had a sacrifice fly for Colorado.The Rockies scored three times in the second against Dereck Rodriguez (6-4).Senzatela (5-6) pitched out of jams in the second and third, and left after giving up a single and a walk to open the sixth. The right-hander allowed one run and struck out five with two walks for his first win since July 28.“He’s still growing as a pitcher,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “He’s still learning a lot. What we like about him is just the competitive streak he has and the toughness.”Four relievers finished, with Wade Davis retiring three batters for his NL-leading 40th save.The Rockies snapped their longest scoring drought this season in the second after a one-out error by first baseman Austin Slater.Desmond singled and Rodriguez walked Chris Iannetta to load the bases. Senzatela followed with his second hit of the season, a single to left. After Charlie Blackmon walked, LeMahieu hit a sacrifice fly to make it 3-0.Black called Senzatela’s single the biggest hit of the series for Colorado. Senzatela’s only other hit this season was on April 27 at Miami.“We had those opportunities on Friday and Saturday but we couldn’t capitalize,” Black said. “Today we did and ironically it’s just the pitcher.”Chris Shaw had a two-out RBI single in the sixth for the Giants.Slater singled in Joe Panik in the eighth to make it 3-2.Rodriguez allowed five hits and one earned run in six innings.“It’s a tough one to lose when you’re getting pitching like that C. J. Cron Jersey ,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “We had some chances but we took a series. You try to take something from that and hopefully carry that into the next one.”ROOKIE LUCKRodriguez has yielded three runs or fewer in all 11 of his starts at AT&T Park this season. He has received two runs or fewer in support in his last four starts overall. “I just go out and throw the best game I can regardless of what’s happening offensively,” Rodriguez said. “The rest I let it take care of itself.”ODDS AND ENDSColorado has not been swept on the road this season. . The Giants lost to the Rockies for only the second time in the last eight home games between the two division opponents. . San Francisco 2B Joe Panik is hitting .364 (12 for 33) in his last 11 games. .
