If you had bet on Tigers' pitching coach Chuck Hernandez to be the first casualty in response to what's been a God awful 2008 season, you can now collect.

The Tigers have decided to fire pitching coach Chuck Hernandez, the Free Press has learned.I'm sure there will be more scapegoats to come. This is only the first move of many, as I'd expect the Tigers to react to the most disappointing season in Detroit sports history very swiftly and with extreme malice. Heads will continue to roll. Hernandez was just first in line.
Detroit manager Jim Leyland said prior to this afternoon’s game that the team was not ready to make any announcement related to its coaching staff, but club officials have indicated for several days that general changes were imminent. The dismissal of Hernandez appears to be the first of them.
