Just two days after the Cubs were eliminated from the postseason, the team has reportedly fired pitching coach Chris Bosio, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale. The 54-year-old Bosio, who pitched 11 seasons in the majors, joined the Cubs coaching staff in 2012 and had been widely hailed for his work. His most notable success: transforming Jake Arrieta from a marginal MLB pitcher (5.46 ERA in 69 appearances with the Orioles) into a Cy Young Award winner. "He's as good of an organizer as any pitching coach I've ever been around, and I've been around some very good ones," Cubs manager Joe Maddon told the Chicago Tribune in 2016. "Boz deserves a lot of credit, and I know he's not a guy who wants all the credit, but he deserves his fair share, for sure," Arrieta said in 2016.
