Cubs likely to hire Jim Hickey as new pitching coach.

Per reports from @CharlsMeow (Twitter), the Cubs are likely to hire ex-Rays pitching coach, Jim Hickey. 

After firing Chris Bosio last week, the Cubs were in the race to hire Hickey along with the Cardinals, Giants, Twins, and others as top choices. 

Jim Hickey is a perfect fit in Chicago. Not only because he is from Chicago originally, but he is already familiar with Joe Maddon from Tampa. Hickey has also dealt with guys like Price, Archer, and even Wade Davis.

The Cubs haven’t announced this yet, but we will make sure to update this if they do.
