New Project Player For New Cubs Pitching Coach

By bullpenbrian - December 23, 2011 - 2:01 am 1 comment.

New Cubs pitching coach, Chris Bosio, has his work cut out for him in 2012.

Not only did Chicago post an NL-worst 4.79 starters ERA in 2011, but Carlos Marmol fizzled out in the closer’s role blowing 10 games, and the staff’s most reliable reliever, Sean Marshall, was dealt to Cincinnati earlier this week.

Additionally, there’s the enigma of Randy Wells who’s been consistently inconsistent, Jeff Samardzija’s transition back to a starter’s role, the development of the newly acquired Travis Wood, and last but not least, the Zambrano situation.

That’s a lot of wood to chop in a single offseason.
