Joe Kerrigan And Gary Varsho Fired

Neal Huntington and John Russell just announced that pitching coach Joe Kerrigan and bench coach Gary Varsho have been let go. Russell said the decision was his. They will be replaced by Ray Searage and Jeff Bannister. It sounds like there were some personal issues and from what Dejan Kovacevic wrote in the P-G, it would appear that those were the overriding considerations. Kovacevic seems to have identified issues of loyalty to Russell. In Kerrigan's case performance is enough to justify the decision. It sounds like he wad focused on matchups more than anything else. I'm happy for Bannister. He's been waiting for a chance for a long time.
