Cubs owner reacts to news that Greg Maddux has left the organization to join up with the Texas Rangers and his brother, Mike Maddux, their pitching coach.

Maybe the third time is a charm.

Chicago Cubs legend Greg Maddux, who had been working as a special assistant to former GM Jim Hendry, has left the organization to join up with the Texas Rangers and his brother, Mike Maddux, their pitching coach, Cubs owner Tom Ricketts confirmed Tuesday.

“Everybody loves Greg," Rickett said. "Wish him the best. He wants to work with brother in Texas. It is what it is. ...  He does have family commitments, he wants to work with his brother and who wouldn't?”

Maddux spent three different stints with the club.

During his 1986-1992 run, Maddux won a Cy Young award. Then he left for the Atlanta Braves.

He rejoined the Cubs in 2004 and stayed until 2006. During that stint he notched his 300th win and 300th strikeout.

He came on board as an assistant to the GM in 2009.
