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.

On July 17 Credit Suisse made no change to the stock rating of "Outperform" but moved up the price target from $75.00 to $103.00. Van Cleef Asset Management Inc's holdings in J P Morgan Chase & Co were worth $1,664,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.
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.
Chicago Bulls trying to move forward after Bobby Portis-Nikola Mirotic incident
A first-round pick in 2015, Portis said he has tried to contact his team-mate, but has received no response. Mirotic suffered broken bones in his face as well as a concussion on Tuesday and will likely need surgery.
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".
