Larry's back and so are the rest of Dusty's merry men

Forget the rumors about the Tigers taking the Cubs pitching coach. Larry Rothschild not only had the chance to leave Dusty and his staff, he had the opportunity to sign a three year deal with the Detroit Tigers and work with his old friend Jim Leyland. According to today's Trib Rothschild will be back and so will the rest of Dusty's staff.

It looks likeDusty is not the mystery candidate in Los Angeles. Despite wishful thinking by myself and others. Baseball bigfoot Phil Rogers reported in Sunday's Tribune that Ranger pitching coach Orel Hershiser is a strong candidate to replace Jim Tracy in LA:

Don't be surprised if Rangers pitching coach Orel Hershiser emerges as a serious candidate to replace Tracy in Los Angeles, where Tommy Lasorda still has influence.

It looks like we have another year of the same ole shit on the Cubs bench to look forward to.
