Cubs Fire Pitching Coach Chris Bosio

The Chicago Cubs' Chris Bosio and the San Francisco Giants' Dave Righetti, both pitching coaches for their respective teams, were reportedly fired Saturday.

When Theo Epstein addressed the media Friday, less than 24 hours after the Cubs were knocked out of the NLCS, he said he didn't want to comment on the makeup of the coaching staff just yet.

Set 10/30 court date would let Cowboys' Elliott play through Week 8
After Sunday's matchup in San Francisco, the Cowboys will travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on 10/29. Dallas took last season's clash in the Bay Area by a final score of 24-21.

Evidently, there's one coach Maddon didn't want back with the Cubs.

Bosio worked under three managers in Chicago and helped oversee a transformation of the pitching staff that contributed to a drought-busting World Series Championship a year ago and three straight trips to the NLCS. He was the team's pitching coach under former managers' Dale Sveum and Rick Renteria, and was retained when Maddon was hired as manager of the Cubs in 2015.

Mugabe WHO appointment 'contradicts United Nations ideals'
Faced with a wage of criticism over the appointment, Ghebreyesus said Saturday that he was "rethinking" his decision. The World Health Organisation says it is now "rethinking" its decision to make Robert Mugabe a goodwill ambassador.

The decision to fire Bosio comes two days after the Cubs were eliminated in their third consecutive National League Championship Series, where they lost in five games to the Dodgers.

That decision comes after a disgusting playoff performance by the team's bullpen, who posted a 6.21 ERA in ten games, and the struggles of several key relievers, including Justin Wilson and Hector Rondon. Their starters boasted a 4.05 ERA, which also ranked seventh. "Our staff has been awesome, and they're tight, a tightly knit group".
