Just one day after the Philadelphia Phillies finished the 2013 season with an extremely disappointing 73-89 record, the team has fired pitching coach Rich Dubee. In 2013, the Phillies had the fourth worst team ERA in all of Major League Baseball, with a 4.32 ERA between the teams' starters and relievers.
Dubee served as the Phillies pitching coach since the 2005 season, and was the pitching coach when the Phillies won the World Series in 2008. Dubee had been in the Phillies' system for 13 seasons altogether.
The past two seasons have been very tough for Phillies pitching, and Dubee has been on the hot seat for some time now. Dubee's firing is the first move the Phillies have made in this brand-new offseason – with likely more to come.
