USA TODAY survey: MLB power shift has managers’ salaries in free fall

CHICAGO — Joe Maddon helped lead the Chicago Cubs to the Holy Grail of sports, with a consistent level of success they haven’t seen in a century, but there are whispers his job could be in jeopardy if they don’t play deep into October.

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch and Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who led their teams to the World Series a year ago, have contracts that expire after this season.

Interim managers Mike Shildt and Jim Riggleman, who have done marvelous jobs since taking over the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds, have no idea whether their gigs will be prolonged or have a September expiration date.
