The Cubs Have Momentarily Stopped Firing People To Hire Bullpen Coach
If you worked for the Cubs last season, there's a decent chance you're somewhere else now.
Here's a quick list of people who have moved on from the Cubs organization since the end of the season.
- Joe Maddon
- Lester Strode
- Chris Denorfia
- Brian Butterfield
- Tim Buss
- Josh Lifrak
- Matt Johnson
- Laura Paluch
- Christine Schwan
- Sam Hughes
I'm sure that's an incomplete list and it doesn't even go into the number of people who have been reassigned.
The front office put the firing machine on hold for a few hours today to name a bullpen coach.
It's the first Cubs hire since naming David Ross manager last week.
Now the Cubs can get back to cleaning house.
