Cubs Fire Pitching Coach Chris Bosio

Cubs Fire Pitching Coach Chris Bosio”

That's Cub: USA Today columnist Bob Nightengale first reported Saturday morning that Bosio had been fired, the team declining a club contract option for next year and making a major influence on the Wrigleyville rebuild a free agent.

Bosio had been Chicago's pitching coach since 2012, and was in charge of the staff that led the Cubs to a World Series title last season.

The obvious candidate to replace Bosio is Jim Hickey, Maddon's longtime pitching coach with the Tampa Bay Rays who has Chicago roots and recently parted ways with the small-market franchise that stayed competitive by consistently developing young arms like David Price and Chris Archer.

"The staff has done a great job", Maddon said Wednesday, per the Chicago Tribune. Our staff's been awesome.

He helped Jake Arrieta develop into a Cy Young Award victor and built up mid-level pitchers such as Scott Feldman and Jason Hammel that the Cubs traded for key players. President of baseball operations Theo Epstein also pointed to season-long control issues in a news conference on Friday. "There's a lot of synergy involved". Montgomery made 14 starts and 44 appearances, finishing with a 7-8 record and 3.38 ERA.

The Cubs pitching staff struggled with command this year, especially in the bullpen.

"Those two guys who have been the ones struggling this postseason, they got the three biggest outs in Cubs history past year", Epstein said, referring to the 10th inning of Game 7 at Cleveland.

The 2017 campaign was a nightmarish one for the Giants from top to bottom, however, as they finished 64-98 and missed the playoffs.
