The Detroit Tigers have fired pitching coach Chris Bosio.
General manager Al Avila told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick on Wednesday that Bosio was dismissed for making an insensitive comment directed at a team employee.
Avila said bullpen coach Rick Anderson will take over for Bosio. A.J. Sager, the Tigers’ roving pitching instructor, will fill in as bullpen coach until Triple-A pitching coach Jeff Pico arrives and assumes that spot on manager Ron Gardenhire’s staff.
Does this deal make sense?
From Hutton’s http://www.officialsstlouisblues.com/Adidas-Chris-Pronger-Jersey perspective, it makes sense, if he doesn’t have a strong desire to win a Stanley Cup in his career. Hutton does get to be a No. 1 goaltender in the NHL; a feat we should not take for granted. The Sabres should be reinvigorated this season, welcoming Rasmus Dahlin to the lineup (and also allowing for the growth of young players, like Casey Mittelstadt, who will become regulars for years to come).
But they are certainly not ready to win next season, and may not be ready for a season or two after that. In the Sabres’ eyes, Hutton can bring consistency and leadership. Ryan O’Reilly’s comments at the end of the season — his thinly veiled claim that the Sabres were OK with losing — certainly resonated with management. They need to be better next season on the ice, but also in the locker room.
It was his sixth season with the Maple Leafs, after he came over in a 2012 deal with the Flyers in exchange for defenseman Luke Schenn.
Van Riemsdyk is coming off a six-year, $25.5 million deal he signed prior to the 2012-13 season.
He was drafted No. 2 Chris Pronger Youth Jersey overall by the Flyers in 2007.
First, as others have pointed out, the http://www.officialbengalsfootballproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_MICHAEL_JOHNSON_JERSEY.html DH rule is the last great differentiator between the leagues, and I do think it’s important that the American League and National League maintain distinctive identities, even if the actual list of differences between them has shortened over time. This better connects the game to its history, sure, but that might not matter to enough younger fans to be all that important. However, it does mark baseball as different from the other major sports, and it Michael Johnson Jersey enhances the World Series, even in a time when interleague play has become routine. Even more so, the existence of the DH means that the two leagues have distinctive styles of play.
That diversity is compelling. Why does a baseball fan have to choose whether to have the DH when he or she can have it both ways? Fans can gravitate toward whatever style they prefer, or, even better, they can have a variety in styles. Then they can argue with those in the other camp, as we’ve been doing since the DH was born in 1973.
