One of the first decisions Piniella made was to name his pitching coach. His choice? Larry Rothschild. This is something I’m not entirely sure about. But then again, it may not have been him that was the problem with the club. We won’t know until next season. Piniella gave Rothschild his first coaching job and he knows him quite well. Benefit of the doubt and I’m a Cubs fan who has a little faith.
