Does this kind of kill the theory that we won't announce the pitching coach hire before the WS is over?

Yes and no. Doing so on an off day isn't an accident, so if it's not done today, then it has to wait til Monday or after the WS(assuming those aren't the same day).

well if I remember correctly, he never had the chance to hire anybody but Dave Martinez when hired. Now he gets his own staff.

In fact, Chili Davis is so cool, he deserves his own thread instead of taking over Mallee's busted ass thread.

on one hand, i'm not sure that any of this was necessary

on the other, it's kind of crazy that we're at the point where a 3rd straight NLCS appearance for the chicago cubs has resulted in a coaching staff housecleaning.

It definitely was not necessary, but I can buy the idea that some new voices might be a net positive.

without being involved directly, i can't say it definitely was not necessary. only the people around those relationships really know that.
