Ah so the Chicago cubs fired the coach who took them to the series. Great. Nowhere else do they fire a person in authority who has produced so much in a little amount of time. We probably lead the sports world in stupidity, but I digress. There is less to be excited about this upcoming year for my cubs now.
I am not sure if the lack of antics or change in coaching style will lead to a positive change next year. When there is a team involved the issues regarding it, involve multiple people. And yes, the head coach is the leader of the overall team, but as any chef can tell you that you can only follow a recipe if you have all the right ingredients. This year the team did not, and I am highly doubtful for next year.
