So, Cubs Bench Coach Andy Green Was Apparently Dismissed

In news that flew under pretty much everyone’s radar, former Cubs bench coach Andy Green has apparently been dismissed. It figured that he wouldn’t be back on the staff after having interviewed for several managerial gigs, then came the big shakeup with David Ross being replaced by Craig Counsell, but nothing had been mentioned about the rest of the coaches.

Until Thursday, that is, when Joel Sherman snuck it into a piece about how Ross and Green view Cody Bellinger‘s future.

Sherman noted that “both have since been dismissed” while teeing up a look at how Bellinger might fit with the Yankees. There’s nothing particularly interesting in their comments about one of the top free agents on the market, all of which saw both eschewing any concern over Bellinger’s batted-ball metrics in favor of more tangible results.

Kind of a nothing-burger in the end, which no doubt irks the folks who clicked hoping to find the meaning of life, just a little bit of news that earned a cocked eyebrow or two.
