John Mallee Leaves for Cubs

John Mallee has accepted a job as the hitting coach for the Chicago Cubs. Mallee is from the Chicago area and his family lives there during the season.

I'm not smart enough to figure out how much of the success of the Astros good hitters to give Mallee credit for and how much of the failures of the bad hitters to give Mallee blame for. I'll just wish him luck in his new endeavor and hope the Astros can find a worthy replacement.

Theo has a lot on the line, too.

Any chance they'll hire bagwell or biggio to replace him?
