Athletics fire pitching coach Curt Young, hire Scott Emerson

The Athletics announced on Thursday afternoon that pitching coach Curt Young has been relieved of his duties and replaced by Scott Emerson.

The Athletics’ pitching has been among the worst in baseball, carrying an aggregate 4.83 ERA. The rotation ERA is 4.66 while the bullpen ERA is an unsightly 5.07. While Jesse Hahn and Sean Manaea have had decent results, Jharel Cotton has struggled mightily and Sonny Gray hasn’t quite returned to 2015 form.

Good luck to the new guy as the A's rearrange the deck chairs on their personal Titanic.

To be fair, their fip is a league average 4.38, their era is only 4.88, but they have allowed 5.43 runs a game(by far the most unearned runs in the AL) their defense isn't that shabby(below average by defensive efficiency) but apparently they are having a bit of bad cluster luck on when things go bad for them.
