That's interesting.  What happened?

Now who is going to tell the pitchers to throw strikes and get outs?

My guess is that he was worked up in the locker room and said some pretty vile stuff. 

I hope it's nothing more than that, anyway. 

Welp, that's interesting.

The team is starting to implode.  I wonder what he said?  it was not a public thing, so it must have been pretty bad

My speculation is that he said something homophobic or racist in the locker room and a player brought it to management’s attention.

as good a guess as any. Or he went off on a player he was frustrated with and his language crossed the line. I don't imagine this week has been any picnic in the clubhouse.

 He made an improper comment to an employee. Rick Anderson takes over as pitching coach.

I'm rooting for implosion. We need more draft money.

Gardenhire always likes his own people. I bet Rick Anderson will replace Bosio.

Didn't Gardenhire hire him?

 

EDIT: I guess Anderson hadn't formally been fired in MN when they hired Bosio as he was brought in between when Gardenhire was fired in MN and when Molitor was hired and axed the old staff.

We’re going down boys. Bosio was one of the off season moves that was very encouraging.

Holy cow........Probably nobody saw this coming. And I certainly didn't think that he would be the first to go.

Anderson's trademark was guys who couldn't break 90 but never walked anyone. Oh-boy

Maybe they should start dumping people who are **** at their jobs.

Good pitching coach or not, I'm glad the Tigers sided with the other employee and appears to have acted swiftly and not waiting for bad press to force their hand.  No need for racism in any workplace, even if it is a game.

Even though it's not directly performance related, this must make Bosio among the shortest-tenured coaches in team history, if not the shortest overall.  Any other candidates?
