Reports are coming in that the Chicago Cubs are parting ways with Lester Strode as their bullpen coach.

Considering I’m one of the few On Tap contributors who was alive the last time Lester was not with the Cubs, it felt fitting that I write this. Truth be told, it is unclear if he is even leaving the team, as there have been reports that he is out as the bullpen coach but will still have a place on manager David Ross‘s staff.

UPDATE: Strode’s replacement will be former Phillies pitching coach Chris Young.
