Joe Maddon is at it again.

The man who is no stranger to costume-themed road trips and bizarre clubhouse activities as manager of the Chicago Cubs (and previously with the Tampa Bay Rays), brought a pink flamingo to his press conference Tuesday.

Whatever it takes to keep the mood light in a pennant race. After all, Maddon can't always be challenging the Cardinals and shaking his fist at AC/DC to get off his lawn.

Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler's daughter was among those who enjoyed Maddon's fine-feathered friend, who has the decidedly un-flamingo name of "Warren."
