The Tigers Pitching Coach Must Have Said Something Insanely Offensive To Get Axed For Making "Insensitive Comments" Towards A Co-Worker
I feel robbed. Cheated, really. I didn't even know who Chris Bosio was until five minutes ago, but now I feel as though I need to know what he said to get himself fired. We'll likely never find out, as - judging by the abruptness of the decision - it could be a very poor reflection on the Detroit Tigers for hiring him in the first place, but that just doesn't sit well with me in this current media climate of unabashed intrusiveness. That had to be one humdinger of a slanderous barb to get him quickly crossed off a payroll that's probably no stranger to mildly disgruntled employees after only half a season. However, to truly stigmatize the stupidity of people with such great gigs that sacrifice them by way of verbal and physical harassment a bit more information than "insensitive comments" is needed.
In all seriousness, this isn't the first time or last time that someone's mouth will have quickly cost them their job in sports, but having words that were uttered privately be gotten out ahead of by significant action publicly is quite the novel strategy in addressing a surefire scandal. Selfishly, I would have rather aided in shaming Chris Bosio into unemployment after his quote, that sounds like it very well might carry some sort of ___-ist label, inevitably leaked and his employer was strong-armed into cutting ties. That said, a tip of the hat is due to the Detroit Tigers for learning from the mistakes of so many organizations that failed miserably before them and taking a proactive approach to running a professional team by maintaining a positive, all-inclusive working environment. Apparently it's a lot more difficult than it reads.
