Everybody already knows Joe Maddon runs the loosest clubhouse in the major leagues but now everyone will probably find out it's the coolest too.
How cool? On Wednesday, it was chill enough for a couple of penguins to waddle around the Tampa Bay Rays locker room — and none of them was named Ron Cey. The manager even let one of the flightless birds take his manager's chair for a while.
Today's VIP guests are...penguins! Maddon: "I wanted the players to chill out a little bit. ...get it?" twitter.com/RaysBaseball/s…

The birds are cute but just keep them away from Mike Trout when they are hungry.
